Temora Aviation Museum (TAM) announced this week that former air force chief Air Marshal Geoff Brown (Retd) has been appointed to the governing committee.
Geoff Brown served as Commanding Officer of 3 Sqn RAAF, 82 Wing, Air Combat Group and was Chief of the Air Force from 2011 until his retirement in 2015.
TAM President David Lowy said “I am very pleased that Air Marshal Brown has agreed to join me on the committee. His appointment will ensure that the Temora Aviation Museum continues to honour the men and women who contributed to our military aviation history."
Two other members of the Museum’s Governing Committee, Dr David Solomons and Phillip Wolanski retired from the governing committee that includes Lowy, Brown, former Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia Glenn Stevens AC and the current CEO of the Museum, Murray Kear AFSM.
Lowy also announced that TAM would start a complex project to return the museum’s English Electric Canberra and de Havilland Vampire to flying condition, neither of which have flown for a number of years.
“A main component of our mission is to preserve our military aviation history, keep these aircraft flying and enable people to learn about the veterans who flew them," Lowy said.
"This will be a very resource-intensive project that will see these aircraft fly again progressively over the next three years.”
