Betcha Didn't Know....Heritage Week tour 2pm this Saturday (April 20)

STOP. LOOK.  Aircraft Taxiway Crossing.


Betcha didn’t know Memorial Avenue was a landing strip/taxiway until 1968.  Betcha didn’t know a Rolls Royce was used to clear landing strips.  Betcha didn’t know Kurt Johannsen (just!) managed to fly a plane with half its propellor missing.  Betcha haven’t seen the Centre’s first air ambulance – a Tiger Moth.


Right? Then…you’d better come to the Museum precinct’s guided tour at 2pm April 20.
