It’s a beautiful clear, sunny day in Temora. One of the nicest we’ve had in long time. It’s perfect weather for the pilots to perform their test flying for the weekend’s events – as they are doing right now… So far, Gordon Glynn has been practicing in his Birddog, aircraft engineer and pilot Andrew Bishop has being flying the Cessna O-2A, Al Clements has had a couple of flights in the Meteor and Bruce Wood has been testing his maneouvres in the Vampire.

We have a great line up for Saturday’s flying. Visitors can expect to see the Tiger Moth, Ryan, Wirraway, Boomerang, Hudson, Spitfire Mk VIII, Canberra, Vampire, Meteor, O-1, O-2, and the Dragonfly. We also have visiting aircraft attending the show, the majestic Lockheed 12, and the Royal Australian Navy’s Huey Helicopter. The same group of aircraft are intending on being flown for Sunday’s events, with the exception of the Huey, which is flying Saturday only.

Although the weather is fantastic at the moment, there is the possibility of rain at some stage over the weekend, but we are preparing for flying as scheduled.

Museum gates open at 10.00 am, flying begins at 11.00. Food and refreshments are available on site, and an entry fee applies. Also, don’t forget to bring along a light fold-up chair if you have one. We look forward to seeing you here!
