Following our major announcement last week we would like to thank everyone who took the time to send us their thoughts, comments and compliments regarding our flying format changes. We do appreciate your feedback as it enables us to understand what you – our visitor – values about the Temora Aviation Museum.
One aspect made very clear is that our new format will make it difficult for visitors traveling from a long distance to see the entire collection flying together. So today we would like to announce that in addition to our Aircraft Showcase Days we will hold at least one major airshow event each year, which will include visiting aircraft and aircraft from our own collection. We plan to announce the first date in a few weeks which will give all of our visitors plenty of time to make plans to attend.
Aircraft Showcase Days
Our first Aircraft Showcase Day will be held on Saturday July 3rd, 2010 here at the Temora Aviation Museum. The Museum will open at 10:00 with the flying program commencing at 11:30. The admission for Aircraft Showcase Days will be Adults $12, Adults over 65yrs $9 and Children 3-18yrs $6. We will be posting on our website an advanced schedule detailing which aircraft will be flying to enable our visitors the opportunity to plan their visits accordingly.
For the July 3rd Aircraft Showcase Day we will be featuring and flying the RAAF Sabre, one of the Museum’s Spitfires and the Tiger Moth. Stay tuned to the website over the next few weeks as we release more details on Temora Aviation Museum’s Aircraft Showcase Days!
The Temora Aviation Museum’s Wirraway is traveling north this weekend with Lars Larson and Andrew Bishop heading to Queensland to participate in the Gathering of Harvard’s and Wirraway’s which is being held in Toowoomba. This annual event which combines classic cars and aircraft is hosted by the Rotary Club of Toowoomba and our friends at Aerotec. The display presents a collection of classic machines – including vintage cars, trucks, hot rods, military vehicles, motorbikes, classic cars and aircraft. This year they are endeavouring to “round up” as many Harvard’s and Wirraway’s as possible and the Museum is sending its Wirraway up to join in the celebrations. If you are nearby, festivities commence on Sunday, 2nd May from 9am at the Toowoomba Airport.
