What a great night we all had at the Temora Aviation Museum for the dinner dance, well not many danced.
We mustered at 6.00pm and witnessed a Wirraway, Wirraway (an Aboriginal word meaning “challenge”) was a training and general purpose military aircraft manufactured in Australia by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation between 1939 and 1946 at Fisherman’s Bend in Victoria. The aircraft was an Australian development of the North American Aviation NA-16-1A and NA-16-2K aircraft. It is powered by Australian manufactured versions of the Pratt & Whitney R1340 Wasp engine.
The pilot flies for Qantas in his spare time!!! Airbus 390s we were told. Loved the sound of this fighter plane:
We then went into the Aviation Museum for dinner, dancing and fellowship. The food was superb and there was plenty to go around.
The highlight of the night was Bush Poet David Benn from the Wollundry Wagga Rotary Club. David recited from memory several great Australian bush poems and as always turbulence was the best and had everyone in stitches. Well done Benny not sure if you noticed the English Electric Canberra Bomber creeping up behind you!
