Temora Aviation Museum Proudly Supports Anzac Day Services across the Riverina
Five Temora Aviation Museum aircraft will take part in Anzac Day ceremonies across the Riverina this Anzac Day by performing fly-pasts in honour of the men and woman who served our great country throughout the generations. The Temora Aviation Museum’s Supermarine Mk VIII Spitfire, Australian built CAC Boomerang and Wirraway, and the Ryan will all take part in addition to the de Havilland Tiger Moth which actually served at Temora training pilots for WWII. Temora Aviation Museum aircraft will participate in Anzac Day services at Temora, Springdale, Ardlethan, Ariah Park, Coolamon, Ganmain, Wagga Wagga, Junee, Uranquinty, The Rock, Naranderra, Leeton and Yenda.
Temora Aviation Museum Chief Executive Kenny Love said “Each and every year the Museum looks forward to participating in Anzac Day ceremonies across the region which enables the Museum to honour the Men and Women who served Australia in times of conflict and peace. This is a core value of Temora Aviation Museum’s, and every Anzac Day provides the opportunity for us to remember and recognise all who have served in defence of our Nation.
The Temora Aviation Museum collects and maintains in airworthy condition, historical military aircraft types flown by, or in conjunction with, Australian military forces. The Museum aims to honour men and women, like the many Anzacs, who contributed during times of war. As part of this acknowledgment the Museum has interviewed hundreds of ex-service men and women as part of the Museum’s ‘Unsung Heroes’ project. This exhibition provides a biographical database which documents the stories and recollections that are vital to the pioneering spirit of Australia’s military aviation heritage.
As a sign of respect, the Museum will not open to the public until midday on Anzac Day.
