The hangar has now re-opened (since Tuesday, 6th January 2015).
Great News!! On the 21October, 2014, the State Government gave to the B-24 Liberator group the land on which the hangar stands. Now we have tenure and can start planning the museum complex. Heritage are still considering H2 but hopefully that decision will come soon.
Thank you to: Melbourne Water, Places Victoria, Treasury and the previous State Government for their generous support of the Liberator group during the past few years. It has been a hard slog but this result is worth it.
A close relative of the original CO of the RAAF Base at Leyburn, Queensland is very keen to buy the book, “Leyburn's Liberators: and Those Lonely Special Duties Air Operations” by Phil Dynes. Their copy was sadly rendered unusable when it was damaged in an accidental boat flooding. For more details click here. If you can help, please contact our Secretary.
You are invited to call in to see the great restoration work being carried out on the B-24 Liberator by the many volunteers on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays between the hours of 9:30 AM and 3:30 PM.
