Temora Aviation Museum is pleased to announce the permanent addition of a Ryan STM S2 (VH-RSY) to its aircraft collection. The aircraft has been on temporary loan to the Museum by its owner Richard Simms, since November 2003 and formal acquisition has now occurred.

The Ryan at the Temora Aviation Museum was built in 1940 and has a polished aluminium finish, with a wooden propeller. This two-seat open cockpit aircraft has a maximum speed of 228 km/h and a wingspan of 9.12 metres.

The Ryan will become an important part of the Museum Flying Weekends, which are held regularly throughout the year. Flying dates for the remainder of the year are August 28 and 29, October 9 and 10 and November 27 and 28.

Come along this weekend to watch the Ryan STM S2 fly along with many other fine examples of Australia’s best known ex-military aircraft. You could expect to see the Tiger Moth, Spitfire, Lockheed Hudson, Meteor, Vampire, Canberra and others, flying in a spectacular visual and auditory airshow.
