Last week we received word that the Museum is a finalist in the categories of Tourist Attraction and Heritage and Cultural Tourism for the Countrylink Inland NSW Tourism Awards.
The Regional Tourism Organisations of New England North West, Central NSW, Riverina Tourism and Outback Tourism have collaborated since 2004 to conduct the Inland NSW Tourism Awards. The Inland NSW Tourism Awards are an opportunity for tourism operators to gain an insight into their industry and business and to achieve recognition for their success whilst promoting tourism within the region.
Winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner on July 25th. The dinner which is being held in Narrabri NSW, will have an Astronomy theme in honour of the towns’ renowned observatory.
We are very excited to announce that the Museum has launched an online ticket system which will enable visitors to pre-purchase Flying Day tickets. Purchasing your ticket online is quick, simple, and secure and will cut down on the time required to enter the Museum upon your arrival. There will be a dedicated ticket booth for pre-purchased tickets which will guarantee the fastest possible entry into the Museum.
JULY 25th – 26th FLYING WEEKEND
Flying action will take place again at the Temora Aviation Museum on July 25th and 26th. The line-up of warbird aircraft which will take to the skies for you during the weekend’s events include the Tiger Moth, Ryan, Wirraway, Boomerang, Spitfire Mk XVI, Hudson, Vampire, Meteor, A37B Dragonfly and Cessnas 0-1 and 0-2.
We have just received news that a Boomerang which has been restored by Matt Denning has made its return to flight and will be passing through Temora on Saturday 25th July. Wearing RAAF 84 Squadron markings this aircraft is owned by Jim Whalley and James Edwards and has just completed a major restoration. On Saturday morning the two Boomerangs will be airborne together which will be a historical moment that you don’t want to miss.
Museum opens at 10:00 am, with flying beginning at 11:00 am.
ONLINE WINTER WARMERS
With winter upon us, we have stocked a number of items in the Merchandise section on our website to help you keep warm on these chilly days and nights.
We have a soft, warm fleecy lined Spitfire Mk XVI hooded sweat shirt with pockets in the front to keep your hands out of the cold air, as well as a hood to keep you head and ears warm.
The Temora Aviation Museum beanie is another cosy winter item to keep your head and ears toasty warm. The beanie is grey and navy blue with an image of an aircraft, as well as the Museum logo on the front. These beanies have been exceptionally popular with the Museum’s engineering team and we have been told that they make great gifts too.
