Iroquois to attend next Aircraft Showcase
The RAN Historic Flight’s Bell UH-1C Iroquois, affectionately known as the ‘Huey’, will make the trip to Temora for Aircraft Showcase on Saturday, 16th August. With the theme being Vietnam, Long Tan the Huey will fit right in amongst the other displaying aircraft, A-37B Dragonfly, Birddog, Cessna 0-2A, T-28 Trojan and RAAF CA-27 Sabre. Those who have seen the Huey display will certainly know that it is a very capable machine and that it puts on a very entertaining display as it showcases those capabilities. Pilot, CMDR RANR Stuart Harwood, from the RAN Historic Flight said “our crew is looking forward to getting back down to Temora on 16th August because the Aircraft Showcase format allows us to not only demonstrate this historically significant aircraft but also talk to the people on the ground”.
Anne racks up 10,000 hours
Long serving volunteer, Anne Widdows, has recently achieved 10,000 hours of voluntary service at the Temora Aviation Museum. Anne joined the volunteer program 13 years ago after falling in love with what was then a small collection of aircraft at the Museum. Anne has met some interesting people during her time volunteering at the Museum, including Australian entrepreneur, Dick Smith, the last man to walk on the moon in the Apollo 17 mission, Captain Eugene Cernan, and the first man to break the sound barrier, General Chuck Yeager. Chief Executive of the Museum Kenny Love said, “the Museum has many wonderful volunteers as part of the volunteer program. Volunteering is incredibly important for the Australian way of life, and people like Anne are what have made the Museum what it is today”.
