The weather forecast this weekend is predicted to be sunny, warm and breezy with a top temperature of 26°c on Saturday, and a top of 20°c on Sunday, which is perfect weather for our final Flying Weekend for 2009, on the 28th and 29th of November.

Our top 5 attractions for this entire weekend are:

1.   Red Bull Air Race Competitors Nigel Lamb and Matt Hall will join forces to display the Spitfire Mk VIII and the P-51 Mustang.
2.   Two TBM Grumman Avengers, from Steve Searle’s collection are travelling down from Queensland to fly a formation display.
3.   World famous Breitling Fighters’ Pilot Nigel Lamb will lead a four-ship display of V-12 powered World War II aircraft, including the Spitfire Mk XVI, Spitfire Mk VIII, Alan Arthur’s P-40 Kittyhawk, and P-51 Mustang.
4.   A three-ship aerobatic demonstration including two Harvards, along with the Museum’s Wirraway. These aircraft will be flown over the two days by Doug Hamilton, Steve Death, Guy Bourke, and David Salter.
5.   A number of veterans from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam are attending our Flying Weekend and you will have the opportunity to hear some of their stories and meet them in person.

As for food and refreshments over the weekend, Fire Brigade Captain Greg Matthews and his team will be firing up the barbeque in the two Mess Halls at the Museum. All proceeds from the sale of all food and drink items go towards local charities, with the hardworking team already donating more than $215,000 back into the local community.

Gates open at 10:00 am and flying begins at 11:00 am both days. Flying will continue through until around 3:00 pm, where all the aircraft will be roped off on the ramp area so that Ramp Talk can begin. This is a great opportunity for visitors to get up close to the aircraft and talk to the pilots. The Museum closes at 4:00pm. Remember to bring along sun protection and a light fold-up chair if you have one. See you this weekend!
