A successful weekend was had by all at the Museums August Flying Weekend, which was held on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28. All Flying displays were co-ordinated smoothly with a cloudless blue sky for the backdrop.

The Royal Australian Air Force Roulette Aerobatic Team proved to be a big draw card for visitors on the Sunday, when they performed their fantastic synchronised flying routines. We thank the Roulettes for attending our Flying Day and we look forward to them returning to Temora again.

Two other big attractions to the Museums Flying Weekend were Col Pays P-40E Kittyhawk and CAC Mustang. To continue the 60th anniversary celebrations that were held to commemorate the end of WWII in Canberra, these two aircraft, along with the Spitfire, put on a special World War II tribute by flying one after the other in the skies above Temora.

The Museums next Flying Weekend will fall on the weekend of 1-2 October. The Museum looks forward to seeing you there.

More action is expected at the Museum on September 9-11 when the Jet Flyers Association of New South Wales will meet for their annual Model Jet Championships for 2005. The event will be held over three days, Friday 9, Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September at Temora Aviation Museum.

The Model Jet Flyers Association claims to have the best jet pilots in Australia running turbine powered scale jets. Pilots come from all over the country to visit Temora to partake in this three day event. The high speed display, at 200 kph plus, promises precision aerobatics. Model aircraft that you are likely to see will range from the usual sport jet to the scale jets such as the F.18, MIG 15, F.15, F.86, Vampire, Euro Fighter, Saab Vigen and many more.

Friday will be a set-up and test fly day, with Saturday and Sunday being the main event days. Flying will begin at 10.00 am until 4.30 pm on Friday, with Saturday and Sunday’s times being 9.30 am until 4.30 pm.
Entry to the event is through the Museum at Museum admission prices:
$10 for adults; $7.50 people aged over 65; and $5 for children (3-18 yrs).

Full canteen facilities will be provided all days, which will be run by the local Fire Brigade within the Museum’s Mess Hall.
