Edinburgh Airshow 2019

The Temora Aviation Museum team was thrilled to accompany the RAAF’s Cessna A-37 Dragonfly, Spitfire MkVIII, Hudson Bomber, CAC Boomerang and Gloster Meteor, (piloted by Darren Crabb, Guy Bourke, Doug Hamilton, Scott Taberner and Mark Skidmore) to the Edinburgh Airshow on 9th & 10th November.

After a delayed departure due to unfavourable weather conditions on Friday 8th November, the team finally hit the skies at first light on Saturday morning. With a refuelling stop at Mildura, the aircraft arrived in Edinburgh prior to the airshow commencing at 10am.

The team flew on Saturday and Sunday in a flawless display to the tens of thousands who attended each day, and the crowd certainly weren’t disappointed!

The highlight for us however was meeting FLGOFF Fred Riley (ret’d).

FLGOFF Fred Riley (ret’d) who flew Spitfires in Europe from 1943-45, was at RAAF Base Edinburgh for the airshow and we had the honour of getting Fred back into the cockpit for the first time since 1945.

FLGOFF Riley flew 210 hours on operational missions over France, Belgium and Holland during WWII. He has been awarded the Legion of Honour, which is the highest honour bestowed by the French.
