For something a little different to the usual club outings, a visit has been arranged to the RAAF Museum at Point Cook which contains an amazing collection of aircraft that have contributed to the history of the RAAF since its inception as the Australian Flying Corps which had its birthplace at Point Cook.
The display ranges from replicas of a Bristol Boxkite and a 1910 Deperdussin monoplane, to a Tiger Moth, a Vampire jet, Supermarine Walrus, a Catalina flying boat, a Sabre jet, a F-4E Phantom and a swing-wing F111, and so many more. There are a number of hangars to check out, all of which contain significant aircraft or memorabilia.
At 1pm on Sundays (and Tuesdays and Thursdays) the museum conducts interactive flying displays involving the museum’s own Mustang, Winjeel, Tiger Moth, Sopwith Pup and sometimes aircraft visiting from other museums. Once the flying display concludes the pilots are available to answer questions from spectators.
Start time: 9.00am for 9.30 departure
Start point: LaManna Direct, Essendon Fields
BYO Food and drinks (cold, hot or otherwise)
Entry to the museum is free. There are picnic tables close to the museum.
There may even be a chance to display the Alfas close to the museum.
Looking forward to having you join me for a day out with a difference.
