After being farewelled by New Zealand, The Spitfire Mk XVI has arrived at Temora
Aviation Museum this morning. Museum Engineers undertook the careful process of
unpacking the Spitfire from the shipping container in which it had made its
voyage. The unpacking was complete by lunchtime with the aircraft being placed
in the Engineering hangar.

Over the next few weeks Museum Engineers will reassemble the aircraft and
prepare it for test flying. In addition to assembly there are also all the tasks
associated with registering an aircraft here in Australia such as re-weighing,
conducting and annual inspection, applying for a Certificate of Registration and
Certificate of Airworthiness and creating a set of Australian Log Books.

At this stage it is anticipated that Spitfire TB863 will make its public debut
flight on August 5th and 6th during a Museum Flying Weekend. So make sure you
visit our August Flying Weekend to see not one, but two spitfires fly in
formation over Temora Aviation Museum - the only place in Australia where you
can experience something this unique!
