June Newsletter ready for download!

Our June newsletter can be downloaded here.

This month our president David Byrne reports on SAAM’s reopening under COVID-19 protocols and the projects that have restarted. He also contributed an article on his participation in the 1978 recovery of Keith Anderson’s Westland Widgeon from the Tanami Desert, where it had lain since its forced landing in 1929. There are restoration updates and project reports; another “Langdon remembers…” episode in which Langdon describes his Sunderland trip to Lord Howe in 1962; and History Group chairman Peter Ingman contributes another article in his series about SA WWII RAAF bases, this time about RAAF Gawler.

To browse past issues, just go to the Newsletters tab on the home page.

 

SAAM reopening on Saturday 6th June!

SAAM WILL REOPEN ON SAT 6th JUNE
And we’ll be open every day 10:30am to 4:30pm.
We have SA Health COVID-Safe requirements in place to ensure the museum is ready to go – including cleaning schedules, social distancing and lots of hand sanitiser…
Please be prepared to pay by card/Paywave – we will not be handling cash until further notice – and note we have reversed our recent price increase in view of access to aircraft interiors not being available and the shop being closed.
Charges are detailed on the side bar.
Social distancing requirements will restrict us to only 4 visitors in the reception area, so we may ask you to wait briefly outside if necessary. Once in the display hangars there’s lots of space!
Also please note that SA Health requires us to keep records of visitor contacts, so be prepared to fill out a form!
We’ll make it all as easy as possible and we are really looking forward to seeing you!
