Temora Aviation Museum (TAM) today officially announced the dates for the next Warbirds Downunder air show.
The show is scheduled for Friday and Saturday 12-13 October 2018. The last Warbirds Downunder was in 2015, which means there will be three years between shows.
TAM CEO Murray Kear said the date has been carefully chosen to give the best chance of suitable weather.
“The decision was made to move the event to October, in an attempt to avoid the higher temperatures that Temora can experience in late Spring and early Summer,” he said.
The 2015 event was held in November and was plagued on the Friday by high temperatures and strong winds.
Kear took over as TAM CEO in October 2016, and immediately delayed scheduling Warbirds Downunder until he had a chance to idenfity the best possible dates and plan accordingly.
Warbirds Downunder is one of the largest airshows in Australia, where over 50 aircraft are exhibited and flown over the two days. In 2015 over 20,000 people attended the event.
“The 2018 event will be bigger and better than 2015," Kear said, "with tickets expected to be released six months prior to the event, and the listing of display aircraft to be announced as they are confirmed.”
