On Saturday 20 Sep 14 I drove to Temora, 2.5 hours from Canberra with a friend to the Temora Aviation Museum for the monthly display of frontline fighters. Each month the museum showcases four warbirds to rekindle memories of former RAAF pilots and aviation enthusiasts alike. Saturday was a double event with the Vintage Sports Car Club of Australia (V.S.C.C.A.) displaying vintage cars and motorcycles.
The war bird flying dates are at http://www.aviationmuseum.com.au/vistor_information/flying_dates/index.html
How to get there? From Canberra, take Barton Highway to the Hume Highway, turn right on to the ‘new’ Burley Griffin Way at the Harden/Temora Turn Off. Follow the signs to Temora, make sure you take a break at the Harden Cafe, highly recommended
Below is s sample of photos taken on the day. The highlight of the day is the Supermarine Spitfire Mk XVI powered by a V-12 Rolls-Royce Merlin 70 engine, 2 stage supercharger, 1710 horsepower, cool 🙂
