This Friday, Saturday and Sunday Temora Aviation Museum will be hosting the Model Jet Flyer Association. Visitors to the Museum will be able to watch these detailed model aircraft fly in their annual competition through the skies over Temora. You will also be able to see the aircraft up close throughout the day. Entry is from 10am with your admission cost including both the Jet Flyers Competition and the Temora Aviation Museum.
October will be a very busy month for Museum personnel and aircraft alike. The weekend of the 4th and 5th will see the Hudson, Meteor, Vampire, Canberra and Cessna O-2A make the trek to RAAF Base Amberley in Queensland to support the Royal Australian Air Force Airshow. For our Queensland supporters who would like to see these historic aircraft up close – this is your chance!
The 11th and 12th of October is the next flying weekend here at Temora Aviation Museum. The engineers will be busy servicing aircraft returning from Amberley and preparing them for flying weekend visitors. At this stage it is planned to fly the entire aircraft collection so why not take advantage of our new two flying day pass and enjoy a full weekend of aviation sights, sounds and smells.
The 19th of October will see the Hudson return to Queensland to provide static display for the Museum of Australian Army Flying Annual Open Day at Oakey. This Museum has a fantastic new facility which is worth visiting to learn about Army Aviation.
October 25th and 26th is the 60th Anniversary of HMAS Albatross. They are celebrating with an Airshow at Nowra which the Temora Aviation Museum will attend with the Vampire, Canberra and Cessna O-2A.
