Visitors on Opening Day

More than a 1,000 visitors came to the Museum on Sunday morning between 9 and 12 to see the planes and exhibition materials. Centenarian Ann Scully was one of them…..you can never be too old to visit a museum! There was a line to visit the cockpit of the F-111 and people were engaged by the informative signs and posters prepared for the Museum by the Evans Head Living Museum.
 
 

 

MiG15 comes to Evans Head

The MiG15 arrived on the 23th of August from Brisbane without its wings, a day and a half before the official opening of the Museum.
The wings arrived on Saturday and the technical boys put it together on Saturday afternoon and wheeled it into the Bellman Hangar late that afternoon  in time for Sunday’s opening.
Whew!  Thanks everyone.  Looks great and is a nice addition to the collection.
