Temora Aviation Museum flightgear photo shoot

Nov 19 2011 – I attended the Temora Aviation Museum warbird airshow and on the day before i conducted a heritage flightgear photo shoot on the ramp with the museum’s world only flying Hudson WW2 bomber and a historical Wirraway trainer – the first official warbird in Australia dating back to the early 1970s.

Temora has a variety of aircraft that are unique to Australia’s rich aviation heritage and they are flown on a frequent basis to show people how these aircraft were when in service.

HUDSON BOMBER
This is the sole flying military Hudson in the world marked as a RAAF bomber that was based in Singapore during the early days of the Pacific War. In 1941/42 when the RAAF were deployed in Asia the Hudson force was the sole bomber force taking the fight to the Japanese advancing across Asia.

WIRRAWAY TRAINER

Wirraway trainer – this aircraft was used as a basic trainer in WW2 by the RAAF and was a development of the US Texan AT-6 trainer. The RAAF Wirraway even took on Japanese Zero fighters over Papua New Guinea in 1942.
