Extraordinary flying took place in Temora over the Easter weekend against a cloudless blue sky. Visitors to the Museum were lucky to witness the visiting aircraft from the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society participate in the weekend’s events. The impressive Neptune took part in the Flying Schedule both days, while the Catalina flew on the Saturday only, due to other commitments elsewhere.
The Lockheed Super Constellation, from the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society, was a hit with more than 1000 visitors taking the opportunity to check out the vintage interior, which was once used to ferry military personnel around the world.
Within the vintage fleet of Museum aircraft, visitors were able to observe the Tiger Moth, Wirraway, Ryan, Hudson, Boomerang, Spitfire Mk VIII, Vampire and Meteor perform flying displays over the weekend. There was also appreciated involvement from Gordon Glynn’s Cessna 0-1, Steve Death’s Trojan, Doug Hamilton’s Harvard and Tom Moon’s Extra 300S.
We thank our visitors for coming along to see the spectacular aircraft displays and we ask that you start planning for the 19 & 20 May weekend, which is set to be big… watch this space…
The Canberra Bomber’s fuel tank is being refitted after repairs. We are planning to fly the Canberra over the May Flying Weekend as part of the vintage trio of jets.
Check out the Canberra’s picture on the photo gallery page, along with recent photos from the April Flying Weekend.
