The big news at the Museum this week is that a series of five minute programmes featuring the Museum’s aircraft will be aired on The History Channel during the month of December 2003, in celebration of a centenary of powered flight. The series which has been produced by the Museum was handed over to The History Channel last friday and word has just been received from them that they will start to go to air today. The Canberra segment will air at 4.24pm, the Wirraway segment at 8.23pm and the Spitfire segment at 9.20pm. All together there are eight segments each featuring a different aircraft. The History Channel has advised that they will endeavour to air them at approximately 8.23pm and 9.20pm each evening throughout the month of December.

This weekend will be our final flying display for 2003. Aside from the Museum’s aircraft we have a couple of special items on the programme. Larry Perkins will be here with his Group 1 V8 Supercar Commodore and will race the Extra on Sunday. The Ryan will take to the skies and a Hudson Bomber will make an appearance on both Saturday and Sunday.

In an effort to help all of you with your Christmas shopping the Museum gift shop will be offering 15% off everything in the store except admissions and gift certificates on Saturday and Sunday. This could be your last chance to get that special aviation gift.

We are planning a great weekend and hope to see you all here
