Fighter Jets are descending on Temora this Saturday and Sunday. A very special flying display is being planned for our November Flying Weekend which will include a range of aircraft from the vintage Tiger Moth through to current military fighters. The weather is going to be beautiful with warm temperatures and clear sunny skies, which is perfect for an airshow.
The flying program is taking shape and will include all of the Museum aircraft as well as several visiting aircraft, such as the O-1 Birddog, Auster, Harvard Formation, a Kittyhawk, and the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Hawk. There will be a second RAAF Hawk at the Museum, which will be on static display in the hangar for you to get a closer look at. Don’t miss the powerful RAAF Hawk during its first visit to the Temora Aviation Museum Flying Weekend!
During the lunch break on Saturday a special presentation will take place for members of the non-profit charity organisation, Wheelies with Wings. Wheelies with Wings help persons with a physical disability gain a flying experience, which in turn helps to create a new level of achievement in their lives. Congratulations to the graduates who will be receiving acknowledgement.
Sunday we will be joined by our special guests the Canberra City Band. They have entertained at the Museum Flying Days before, and are always a welcome addition to the flying. They will perform from 10am to 11am and again during the lunch break.
This weekend we will be running a special Christmas promotion and offering that everyone who purchases a Temora Aviation Museum Warbirds DVD or Ted Sly’s book The Luck of the Draw will go into a draw to win a ride in the Wirraway. There is one ride to be won each day. The winner must be over the age of 18yrs, receive a safety briefing and be willing to sign a liability waiver.
The Museum will open at 10.00 am, with flying commencing at 11.00 am both Saturday and Sunday. Flying will continue through until 3.00 pm, after which a ramp talk will be conducted. This allows you the opportunity to get up close to the aircraft and ask pilots questions. Food and refreshments will be available all weekend from the Museum’s two Mess Halls. And of course, remember your sun protection and a light-fold up chair if you have one. See you here!
