It flown once a month in summer here plus does major air show but is offline in winter for maintenance so this is the only flying day for quite a while

If you row fast you might make the december flying day http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have a very good friend there in Oz. Already blew our vacation money, LOL. I would love to spend a couple of weeks there, our families maybe enjoying the coast and whatever . . . I'm sure that he and I would have gotten away from the wives and kids long enopugh to see some aviation stuff. Ah, well . . . Maybe next year http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

well, apart from the Temora museum flyables, there is another flyable collection in Toowoomba Qld with a Fiat, Sea Fury, Boomerang and a few others

and of course the static display at the Australian War Memorial (close to Temora) has a Lanc, bf109, me163, me262, Spitfire Mk I and a few other goodies
