TEMORA AVIATION MUSEUM HANDS OVER OWNERSHIP OF 11 AIRCRAFT TO THE
RAAF

AT THE MUSEUM AT 11.00AM ON MONDAY 1 JULY 2019.
Today, Monday 1 July 2019, saw the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and Temora
Aviation Museum begin their previously announced strategic alliance which has the RAAF
take over ownership of 11 of the Museum’s aircraft.
Mr. David Lowy, President and Founder of the Temora Aviation Museum said, “The alliance
with the RAAF deepens and broadens ownership of the Museum’s aircraft beyond one
individual which is important for the long-term future of these historically significant national
assets.”
The aircraft will remain on display for visitors to view at the Museum and be available for the
public to visit 361 days a year.

TEMORA PILOTS SWORN INTO THE RAAF RESERVE.

The Temora Historic Flight Club will continue to be responsible for the flying displays at
Temora, while 12 of the flight clubs’ pilots, including the Museums President and Founder
David Lowy have been inducted into the RAAF Reserves as Special Capability Officers with
the rank of Flight Lieutenant.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Temora Aviation Museum, Mr. Murray Kear, said the
alliance would not alter the public’s experience at the Museum.
“The service and experience that is offered to our visitors will remain the same and we will
continue to play an important role in the local community,” he said.
While Mr. Kear handed over the ‘keys’ of the 11 aircraft to the RAAF at the Museum today,
the Museums Engineering entity will continue to maintain the aircraft that the RAAF now
own.
