    All-States Aussiefrogs/Aviation Drive & Tour

    Hi all,

    After my trip to Melbourne (to the drive day, AFCD and the International Airshow with Aussiefrogs members) I thought it could be a worthwhile thing to organise an Aussiefrogs meet at the Temora Aviation Museum.

    They have flying weekends once a month - which cost $8. Temora is only 4-5 hours from Sydney - my parents are there in the C3 this weekend.
    The calendar is at <a href="http://www.aviationmuseum.com.au/temora/news_events/calendar.htm" target="_blank">http://www.aviationmuseum.com.au/temora/news_events/calendar.htm</a>

    I definately couldn't go in June, but would anyone else be interested in any of the other weekends? April 19/20 would be great as would May 17/18.

    Anyway, depending on the response we can organise this and maybe some sort of drive somewhere and make a thread in the future in the French Car Club Announcements.

    Hmmn, I guess as another "aerosexual" , it's interesting. The two dates suggested seem possible.

    It wouldn't be the first time I drove somewhere out in whoop whoop to see some planes I made a 700km day trip to visit the Ansett museum once!

    Regards,

    Justin

    I could do the April one (have 1 week uni holiday the following week).

    2 questions though - who else would come with me and where would we stay?

    EDIT: just remembered that my aunt and uncle live in Sydney (suburb of Wangaratta??) Something like that. I guess I should be able to stay there

Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    nJm,

    Temora's 4 hours from Sydney so there's really no need to be staying *in* Sydney.

    Have a look on a map.. it's not that far from Wagga Wagga.

    Well my dad and I have just made a decision that we're going down to Temora this Saturday.

    If anyone else decides to come along, great! First stop in Temora is a pattiserie (to carry along with the Melbourne Aussiefrogs theme).

    Flying starts at 11am on Saturday. There's someone special (can't remember his name) coming out from England to do some flying in the Canberra Bomber which is one of this weekend's highlights.

    Hope some of you Melbournites can come!
    Derek.

    And one of the reasons I wanted to go to Temora Aviation Museum - David Lowy's Spitfire.

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.
