THINGS TO DO: Engines Alive at Queensland Air Museum

04 January 2018

Queensland Air Museum's first ENGINES ALIVE DAY for 2018 will be held on Saturday, January 13.

Open from 10am to 4 pm, this will be a very special event with the involvement of VINTAGE CALENDAR GIRLS who will run a FASHION SHOW at 11.30 am and the girls will be on hand selling their glamorous 2018 Calendar (proceeds from calendar sales go towards supporting Sunshine Coast cancer sufferers and their families).

The usual attractions will be there; WW2 Jeep rides, free Jumping Castle, Engines will run at 11am & 1pm, and there are a couple of newly re-furbished engines running this time around.

The F-111 cockpit will be open and we will have some experienced aviators on hand to explain just how these magnificent machines operate and provide background information about many of QAMs exhibits.

There will be a range of food and drink options available, Girl Friday Jazz & Blues Band will be playing.

So, if you are looking for something different from the  sun and surf, head along on January 13 and support Queensland Air Museum in its many projects to ‘Preserve Australia’s Aviation Heritage’.

And don’t forget to check out the Lockheed Neptune P2 restoration... it is almost complete!!


Queensland Air Museum is Australia’s largest and best display of vintage aircraft all in one fantastic location next to the Caloundra Airport on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

With more than 75 historic aircraft and many other displays, QAM is the spot to spend several memorable hours or take advantage of a visit during one of our Engine Run Days or the Open Cockpit Weekend.

QAM is a 100% volunteer organisation and welcomes visitors every day of the year (except Christmas Day).
