A great day at Moorabbin Air Museum

A bit after 12 noon a modest turnout of Stephen Edmonds, John Hadfield and myself met at the Sandbelt Hotel for a leisurely Sunday lunch. Arriving at the museum around 1:30pm, WCC attendance doubled upon us meeting Leif, Natalie and Dale.

Despite an overcast day and some challenging shooting conditions inside the large dark hangar, there were many photo opportunities for those with an off-camera flash – jet turbines, piston engines, a fighter jet and more; while outside were several large commercial aircraft on display; 25 in total.

Putting claustrophobia in her stride, Dale got some exclusive cockpit time at the controls of some historic wartime flying machines while Stephen, John, Natalie and myself tinkered about and discussed the workings of a jet engine on display.

An enjoyable and interesting day was had by all.
