Queensland Air Museum has won the 'Attractions – Small Business' category of the Sunshine Coast Business Awards held at the Novatel, Twin Waters recently.
At a glittering function, attended by 610 Sunshine Coast Business representatives, Queensland Air Museum was one of 29 winners from 120 finalists highlighting the full range of business activity on the Sunshine Coast.
The Attractions – Small Business Award was sponsored by Australia Zoo and Bindi Irwin was on hand to present the winning trophy.
Queensland Air Museum has been ‘Preserving Australia’s Aviation Heritage since 1973. A 100% volunteer organisation now with 100 historically significant aircraft, QAM opens to the public every day of the year and is the ideal spot to spend several hours learning about Australia’s aviation history. Both military and commercial aircraft are on show all with informative display boards and there are many other aviation related displays providing insights into Australian Aviation of the last 100 years.
President, Cameron Elmes expressed his appreciation to the 100+ hard-working, dedicated, and skilled volunteers who make QAM what it is by acquiring historic aircraft, restoring them, and maintaining them to display quality for the public’s appreciation.
QAM’s latest major acquisition, the ORION P-3 rests at the Sunshine Coast Airport awaiting dis-assembly and transport to QAM early in 2019, but there’s plenty to see with the Neptune and Ventura restorations complete and numbers of aircraft being re-painted along with numbers of other restoration projects underway.
