Group spreads wings
THE volunteers at Queensland Air Museum have been kept busy.
Recently QAM attended the TAVAS Air Show at Caboolture, commemorating 100 years since the Red Baron was shot down over France at the Great War Display, a fabulous event.
Last week, QAM hosted the KM Weapons of Choice Fundraiser, organised by Ange Mansey of Kurluin Mufflers, in support of cancer research.
The crowd were treated to a massive range of vintage, veteran and specialist motor vehicles under the wings of QAM historic aircraft on display, a ‘drive-in’ movie theatre, live music and a vast range of activities.
In the meantime, considerable conservation and restoration works have been proceeding, the DC-3, the Neptune and many others including restoration of the Konig SD-570 engine.
This German designed engine, used primarily in powered para-gliders and ultra-light aircraft has been painstakingly restored to running order by the QAM engine crew.
All of this just after a successful Engines Day on April 7 attended by about 700 visitors.
