More than 18 months of planning is complete and the staff and volunteers of the Temora Aviation Museum are now in the final stages of preparation for Warbirds Downunder 2013, which will take place this Saturday 2nd November.
Warbirds Downunder will feature warbird aircraft from as far away as South East Victoria and South Australia to Toowoomba and Caboolture in Queensland.
Visitors will have the opportunity to get up close to some rare aircraft, walk through the Lockheed Constellation and check out the cockpit of a fast jet. Both the RAAF Hawk and F/A-18 Hornet will be displaying on the day with an additional static display of both the Hawk and Hornet and a C-130J Hercules on the ground available for the public to view. In addition to current serving and ex-military aircraft, more than 150 general aviation and business aircraft are expected to attend as aviators from around Australia make good use of Temora’s Aerodrome and high quality aviation facilities.
“The detail which has gone into preparation for Warbirds Downunder 2013 is extraordinary and it has all been focused on ensuring that every visitor who comes through the gate has the best experience possible” said the Museum’s Chief Executive, Kenny Love. “Warbirds Downunder 2013 will be a world class display of vintage and historic aircraft complimented by modern RAAF fast jets including the Hawk and the Hornet. This year we have also introduced a Veteran Retreat where Veterans will be able to relax and catch up with mates. There are plenty of activities for the entire family including pedal powered airplanes for the little aviators.”
Final arrangements are underway as the weather forecasters predict near perfect airshow conditions with temperatures in the high 20’s, light wind and clear skies.
Tickets are now available online for this event. More information about Warbirds Downunder can be found on the Museum’s website at www.aviationmuseum.com.au
