The Temora Aviation Museum of New South Wales, Australia, has just announced that they will host the next Warbirds Downunder air show over the weekend of October 19th/20th, 2024; tickets will go on sale at the end of 2023.
 
This is a good heads-up to make travel plans for the premier warbird show in Australia!
 

This renowned biennial event has been on hiatus since 2018; Covid restrictions caused cancellation in 2020, and the situation was still in flux during 2022. This marvelous air show is guaranteed to attract the very best of Australia’s burgeoning fleet of airworthy vintage military aircraft along with significant participation from present-day armed forces.

While the lineup for Warbirds Downunder 2024 has yet to be released, the 2018 edition featured numerous piston-engined warbirds both on the ground and in the air, including multiple Spitfires, Mustangs, Kittyhawks, a CAC Boomerang, and many other types, not to mention the world’s only airworthy Lockheed Hudson. Numerous trainers and liaison types accompanied the WWII ‘heavy-iron’ while a number of jet warbirds were also in attendance, such as the locally-based Cessna A-37 Dragonfly, CAC Sabre and English Electric Canberra.

Furthermore, the Australian Defence Forces supported Warbirds Downunder 2018 with the RAAF Roulettes Demonstration Team, C-27J Spartan, Hawks, F/A-18 Hornets, C-17A Globemaster, C-130J Hercules, and a E-7A Wedgetail. They will, doubtless, contribute significantly to the 2024 edition too!

Stay tuned to the museum’s Facebook page and website for future details.
