Mr Evil – You are correct. The Super Constellation is owned and operated by the Historical Restoration Society at Illawarra Regional Airport.

However, it is scheduled to visit Temora for the January flying weekend as per both organisation’s websites.

A Super Constellation? Really?

I’m going!

The Super Constellation is owned by the Historical Aviation Restoration Society, not the Temora Aviation Museum, and is based at Illawarra Regional Airport (Shellharbour).

You may want to check with the Temora museum to see if the Constellation is scheduled to visit on the day though….

TAM has two Spitfires, by the way, and a Hudson bomber.

Australian Sabres were also notable for twin 30mm cannon.

The North Koreans thought the Sabre under-gunned until they met ours.

My dad also leant to fly in a Tiger Moth back in the 50s before going onto to do active serice in SEAsia in the 60s and early 70s.

I also saw a Sabre once at RAAF Willytown when i was little. Tiny little thing but awesome…

I would like to see the Tiger Moth. My dad learned to fly in one of those when he was a young cadet doing national service back in the Fifties. His ex-Luftwaffe instructor would famously yell, “Vot you do, boy! Vot you do!”

Love the Sabre, saw it in ’86 at Richmond.

I am so so so going to see that F-86 when she’s airworthy again.

And watching the Museums 2 Spitfires is amazing!

I too went there last year, great day, very enjoyable. Lots of static displays to look at as well. Get there early (before opening time) to avoid the crowds.

I went to the flying day in November last year. It was awesome, well worth the trip if you can get out there!

Be warned though, its really hot so take lots of water.

Yes, it certainly is worth seeing. TAM have a wonderful collection and all their aircraft are very well maintained and displayed professionally and safely.

Hopefully, later this year the CAC Sabre will be airworthy again, and that will be worth seeing in the air again.

Take a hat.

Well, yeah…

But dog fighting sounds much more exciting…

They look like they are formation flying to me 😉

Gotta love old planes. Especially WW2 era. Fantastic.

Thumper 11:56 am 13 Jan 09

Woohoo! Dog fighting Harvards!
