LUKE’S LAST DAY
Today is aircraft engineer Luke McCrae’s final day working at Temora Aviation Museum. Luke is one of the longest serving employees at the Museum. A Temora local, he started out as an apprentice aircraft engineer back in 2001, and progressed to become the skilled aircraft engineer that he is today.
Luke will be leaving the Museum to experience a sea-change, with a position in the marine industry. We wish Luke and his family all the best in their relocation!
