Temora Aviation Museum experienced a successful Flying Weekend on 30th April and 1st May 2005, with great attendance both days.
The participation of the non-profit organisation ‘Wheelies with Wings’ on Sunday’s Flying Day was a wonderful addition to the programme. The organisation offers physically disabled people the opportunity to gain a flying experience, which in turn creates a sense of freedom and achievement in their lives. Pilot Suzi Duncan, whom herself has a disability, gave a moving speech and expressed the importance that the charity organisation presents in people’s lives who are affected by a disability.
The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Roulettes from Sale in Victoria put on a show with their four-ship aerobatic formation displays. We thank them for their welcome support in making our Flying Weekends an exciting event.
The Museum would like to thank all staff, pilots and crew, volunteers, visiting aircraft and visitors, for contributing in their own special way to making the weekend a success.
Our next Flying Weekend falls on the 11th and 12th June 2005. If you will be requiring accommodation in Temora or within a neighbouring town for this event, we remind everyone that there is a list of contact numbers available on our website
Australian War Memorial Open Day
The Australian War Memorial Open Day will be held at Canberra War Memorial on Saturday 8th May 2005. The Museum’s English Electric Canberra will be making a fly-past during the event. You can catch it fly over around 1.15 pm.
Airshow at Nowra Museum of Flight
An ad, which is advertising the Nowra Museum of Flight Airshow, has appeared in the ‘Southern Weekly’ newspaper insert which is featured in regional newspapers. The purpose of the ad was to advertise the Nowra Museum of Flight Airshow to be held on Sunday 15th May. The ad incorrectly states that the Museum of Flight is at Temora.
Temora Aviation Museum would like to make it clear that there will not be any flying at the Museum on Sunday 15th May, although aircraft from Temora Aviation Museum will be visiting Nowra to participate in their event.
