Just a heads up for any members interested in the history of Qantas, with a focus on the Catalina's during the war. The Qantas Founders Museum has long had a Catalina on display, but it was only recently painted in wartime colours and is now ready for proper display.

The details are on their website, though getting to LRE with such short notice might be a bit hard. I'd definitely recommend an event there though, I'm even organising one for next year.

I shall not be able to make it for that day as I'll be in the Canberra.

Any chance you could give me some tips on LRE though Sam? intending to visit before the years out.

Certainly, give me a call some time, or perhaps I can come down to OOL for some spotting?

Don't forget, there'll also be an AFF event in LRE next year ;)

Had some lovely canapés in the Q.A.N.T.A.S hangar and I'm now sat down in the museum for the dinner.

Oh joy, what do I see on the table!

Looks great. If we were not flying out of SYD on Monday we may have come to the event.

I "HATE" alternate drop. its even worse then Buffet !!

For the price I paid I couldn't care, even perhaps if it was buffet, but thankfully not.

I simply gave my dietary requirements before the dinner so I knew if there was lamb (which there wasn't) I'd be spared.
