Wheels, wings and other exciting things

The RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre is having a public open day with a difference this weekend.

A motoring theme will see a line up of more than 15 immaculate Jaguars as well as customised vehicles from the Kustoms of Australia Car Club.

The wheels will add to the line up of wings including the F-111 strike bomber, Douglas Boston light bomber, Lockheed Electra, Bell Sioux helicopter and Iroquois ‘Huey’ gunship and many more.

The Amberley Brass Band will be on show and representatives from the Australian Air Force Cadets will be available to discuss their program.
