Welcome to 2009 with the Temora Aviation Museum. It’s the start of another year, and we have lots in store for the year ahead including the anticipated first flight of the RAAF Sabre later in the year.

TEMORA’S TWILIGHT TAKEOFF

For the first time ever the Temora Aviation Museum will be presenting Temora Twilight Takeoff on Friday 30th January. If you have never seen these rare warbird aircraft fly against the backdrop of a Riverina sunset then we recommend you come to this inaugural event. We will have multiple aircraft flying for you including the Tiger Moth, Harvard Formation, Spitfire, Cessna A37B Dragonfly and the Super Constellation as a grand finale. The full Museum complex will be open for your enjoyment and the Mess Hall will be open for you to purchase some dinner. Gates will open at 6.30 pm with an anticipated finish time of 9.00 pm. Ticket prices will be: Adults $10, Adults 65yrs+ $7.50 and Children $5. You will also be able to purchase a Two-Day Pass so you can be a part of the full flying display on Saturday or Sunday.

FLYING WEEKEND

Our first flying weekend for 2009 is shaping up to be a huge event. The two days of spectacular flying is taking place on Saturday 31st of January and Sunday 1st of February. We are excited to announce that we will have the support of the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) when they bring their stately Super Constellation to join the flying program. The Super Constellation, or ‘Connie’ as it is affectionately known, is a popular attraction at Flying Weekends as visitors are able to ascend the stairs to view the inside of the aircraft as well as watch it fly each day. The Connie is a militarised version which served with the United States Air Force from 1955 and then served with the Air National Guard in the United States during the 1970s. It is similar to the Super Constellations that were used by Qantas during the 1940s and 1950s as their main long range passenger aircraft, which pioneered their around-the-world service.
The Connie will join the unique and rare aircraft of the Temora Aviation Museum collection for what promises to be a spectacular weekend of flying.
