This Sunday, 13th March, aircraft from the Temora Aviation Museum will participate in the 2016 Tyabb Airshow – Winged Warriors. The Tyabb Airshow is a biennial event operated by the Peninsula Aero Club in Victoria. The entire event is staged by the club members, all of whom are volunteers and the Museum has been supporting this airshow since its inception.
Winged Warriors will present yesteryear’s battle wagons. They’ll be put through their paces, to thrill and to remind us of how it used to be. Some of them are very rare, so rare that they are the only ones in existence. They’re not museum pieces, but the real deal. They’ll all be flying. Be moved by the sounds of the Rolls Royce Merlins, the enormous Pratt & Whitney Wasp radial of the Corsair and get the flutters when a Vietnam era Bell Huey helicopter beats a path to the airfield. The Australian Defence Force will be there with some of their latest technology, both on the ground and in the air and the show will include nail-biting performances from our aerobatic champs. On the ground will be a static display of antique aircraft from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s accompanied by a bevy of classic cars. For More Information about the airshow, check out their website.
Both of the Temora Aviation Museums Spitfires will be attending as well as the CA-13 Boomerang. As always the weather is playing havoc with travel plans but it is anticipated that these aircraft will be away from Temora from Saturday to Monday.
