After several months of maintenance the Spitfire is returning to our flying program. All four propeller blades have been replaced, with new blades purchased from the Hoffman Company in Germany. All the tooling to assemble the propeller had to be fabricated by the Temora Aviation Museum Engineers, as the tools are no longer available for purchase.
Temora weather for Saturday and Sunday is expected to be sunny with tops of 24 degrees. There is a very light cool breeze, so a jacket is recommended.
A reminder that daylight saving ends on Saturday night, when the clocks are turned back one hour.
The flying programme for the weekend includes the Tiger Moth, Ryan, Wirraway, Hudson, Spitfire, Meteor, Vampire, Canberra, T-28 Trojan and the A37B Dragonfly.
Lunch and refreshments will be available from our ‘Mess Hall’. A variety of hot and cold food can be purchased. The Temora branch of the NSW Fire Brigade operates the Mess Hall and all proceeds go to local charity.
The Museum opens at 10.00 am and flying begins at 11.00 am. Although some seating is provided, you are welcome to bring a fold-up chair.
