Maryborough Wings & Wheels
The Old Aviators Flying Museum is inviting all those passionate about aviation or classic cars to join the museum for the First Annual “Wings & Wheels” weekend at Maryborough Aerodrome in Victoria’s Central Goldfields. In a joint initiative with the Austin 7 Car Club, Central Goldfields Shire Council and the Old Aviators Flying Museum the event will be held on the weekend of 14 & 15 September 2013.
“Wings & Wheels” will provide a unique opportunity for aviators to attend a fly-in where aeroplanes are not the sole attraction. Historic cars will be on display, and a Historic Car Sprint will be held on the main runway on Sunday. There will be opportunities to tour “The Old Aviators Flying Museum” for the first time since its closure in January 2012.
Tours of local attractions will also be available on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning for visitors who wish to see more of the local attractions than the aerodrome.
Our very own Kyneton based team from “Adventure Flights Unlimited” will be displaying the Yak52 with a few runs across the township to promote the event. However we hoping that with further assistance of the members from the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia and others yet to be confirmed we will be able to make this a great day for everyone interested in getting involved.
To run such a large event it is hoped that members of the Kyneton Aero Club will be able to assist in making this a great day out. If you are interested in getting involved in supporting the event on the day then please contact Kim Skyring at Transaero on 0418 100 028 with any enquiries.
