Nhill aviation 10th birthday celebration
Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre has invited the wider Wimmera community to join in the centre’s 10th birthday celebrations on November 24.
In November 2008, Nhill and district residents attended a public meeting to discuss the former Royal Australian Air Force – RAAF – base that existed at Nhill aerodrome during the Second World War.
A motion asking for a committee to be formed to develop a suitable memorial was presented and carried.
The elected committee met and developed a board of management, which kick-started the development of what is now known as Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre.
The centre is the result of 10 years of commitment, dedication and hard work by both the board and hundreds of members and volunteers.
The board of management has invited the community to attend the birthday celebrations.
The heritage centre open at 10am, with a barbecue at noon.
Birthday celebration formalities will start at 1.30pm and members plan to start the centre’s Wirraway plane at 2.30pm.
There will also be a book fair set up in the flight office, with books for sale for $1 each. will free
