Many visitors braved the warm temperatures on the weekend to experience some fantastic flying. A group from the Narromine Aero Club chartered a Beech 1900 and flew down to join us for the day on Saturday. Sunday saw the arrival of two DC-3 aircraft from Discovery Air Tours, Bankstown NSW full of passengers excited by their flight and the anticipation of some great flying displays. Our survey’s showed we had visitors from every state in Australia and also international visitors from America, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
Throughout the weekend most of the Museum’s aircraft took to the skies including the Tiger Moth, Spitfire, Vampire, Canberra, Dragonfly and the trio of Trojan/Birddog/Cessna O-2A. A highlight of the flying activities was Malcolm Long’s Lockheed Hudson which is on loan to the Museum.
Unfortunately we have had to cancel our May flying weekend due to crew availability and engineering schedules. We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause. Our next flying weekend is March 27 & 28 followed by April 24 & 25 and June 12 & 13.
