A reminder that Temora Aviation Museum is expecting Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F/A-18 Hornets at our Flying Days this weekend. Coming to Temora from RAAF 77 Squadron based at RAAF Base Williamtown, NSW it is planned that the Hornets will fly on both Saturday and Sunday. Four Hornets will conduct a formation aerial display and Squadron Leader Paul Simmons will conduct a solo, high energy aerobatics routine. Throughout both days one F/A-18 will be on static display allowing Museum visitors the rare opportunity to take an up-close look at this RAAF frontline fighter aircraft. Due to the high possibility of time changes we do not normally publish our flying schedule however – subject to change – we are able to inform our visitors that flying runs from 11am to 3pm with the Spitfire scheduled in the first half and Hornets scheduled in the later half of the programme.

Visitors can expect to see an action packed programme with aircraft from the Museum collection airborne including the Tiger Moth, Wirraway, Canberra, Meteor, Vampire, Dragonfly and Spitfire. We are anticipating a huge weekend with the inclusion of visiting aircraft such as a P-51 Mustang, P-40 Kittyhawk and a WWII Boomerang.

The weather forecast for the weekend is fantastic – Mostly Sunny with temperatures of 16 to 17 degrees. We recommend visitors dress in layers as the mornings can be very cool.

The weekend is planned to be a spectacular event that will entertain visitors of all ages. Come along and bring the family to Temora Aviation Museum’s special flying weekend on the 5th and 6th of August 2006. The Museum will be open from 10.00 am, flying begins at 11.00 am.
