So after the great day in Forest Hill with the CT4 owners, I was lucky enough to catch a ride in a CT4 to the inaugural Temora Aviation Museum’s Warbirds Downunder airshow. The below image shows the first view we had as made finals in Temora. What a sight! Harvards, Hudson, Winjeels, Connie, Roulettes and everything else that was in the flight line. Wow, what a start to the day!
Once we taxied into the position and tied down the CT4, we wandered off to check out all the aircraft a little closer. We ended up being located next to the Harvard’s, which allowed us to grab front row seats along the fence for the main flying displays.
The real fun got underway with flying, and what a great display of aircraft we were treated to. From the Ryan trainers, Tiger Moth and other early trainers including the Winjeel’s & CT4 formation.
Then along came the fighters of WW2, inlcuding the Spitfire, Mustang & Kittyhawk. What an awesome noise this generated! Then making a debut appearance was the Sea Furey – an awesome restoration of this classic.
Connie made some stunning passes – nothing beats seeing this classic take to the skies! The oil dripping and burning smell is one that is hard to beat!
Then the Roulettes dazzled the skies with their amazing skills.
With the demonstration being completed by the RAAF FA-18 lighting up the skies & probably bursting a few ear drums!
All in all, this was a fantastic day from the Temora Aviation team, well supported by many visiting aircraft and a whopper of a crowd.
The only question is…. when is the next one!
