Land Tenure Approval
Great News!! On the 21October, 2014, the State Government gave to the B-24 Liberator group the land on which the hangar - H1 - 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.
Admission is only a $5 donation per person; there is no charge for visitors under 16 years.
Attendance at an engine run - when conducted - is an extra $5. For more details on the engine runs, go here.
For an inspirational insight into the production of the aircraft, download this original footage. This original photo of A72-176 was generously sent to us.
