Museum Aircraft and Scale Models…

The Temora Aviation Museum is proud be hosting the Temora Invitational Scale Classic 2010 on Saturday 6th November here at the Museum. The Scale Model competition will be incorporated into the Aircraft Showcase – Piston Fighters event we are scheduled to hold. This combined event will take place on Saturday the 6th November with the Scale Models also flying on Friday 5th and Sunday 7th.

When asked about the event, John Rolfe, organiser of the scale classic, had this to say: “Well once again the year has rolled around to one of the best Scale model competitions in Australia and to top this event off we have the Temora Aviation Museums Showcase on the Saturday. This year we have a few very interesting aircraft on display from WWI and WWII including multi engine aircraft and modern day military jets. There will be people on hand to explain to the visitors how these aircraft operate. Each flying routine will consist of 10 manoeuvres of the pilot’s choice and two compulsory ones. All aircraft will compete in four rounds over the three days of competition as well as static judging to see how close the aircraft detail is to a full sized version. With at least two aircraft in the air all the times it will be very exciting for those watching, visitors will also have the chance to get up close to the aircraft throughout the day.”

This weekend, you must come to Temora Aviation Museum to witness a full sized Spitfire, Kittyhawk and Wirraway along with dozens of meticulously built scale model aircraft in the air. So grab a chair and your sunscreen and come on out to the Temora Aviation Museum this weekend. Food and beverages will be available on all three days, with normal admission applying both Friday and Sunday and on Saturday Aircraft Showcase Day admission applies, see www.aviationmuseum.com.au
