Best General Aviation Airsport Display at Avalon 2013
The TAA Museum once again mounted a display at the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition 2013 at Avalon Airport Victoria Australia.
This year the museum was honoured by winning the Best General Aviation Airsport Display 2013
The TAA Side
Our mini Museum was displayed within the tent as shown below
Within we were able to display TAA Airline through the ages until the 1990s, along with a display of Ansett Airlines as well.
TAA's early years, and some of the advertising posters and aircraft of the era.
More posters and the early Hostess uniform based on the military uniform of the day.
A display cabinet showing some of the aircraft TAA were considering in their move to wide-body aircraft, and some of the smaller aircraft which were adopted for use by the airline.
Cabinet 2 contains some of the early history of TAA, the first set of pilots wings, the first credit card and a ticket for the first TAA flight to Sydney in 1946.
TAA was also awarded the following plaque for the Best General Aviation Airsport Display.
In late 1969 TAA made a radical move from the military style uniforms of the past to a colourful trendy style which was generally very well received..
As TAA evolved so did the uniforms, and when the airline changed logo, new uniforms went with the new name, Australian.
The Ansett Side
The Ansett display within the museum is in recognition of another major airline involved in the development of aviation in Australia, which now no longer exists.
Posters and printed material from the Ansett, and Ansett-ANA era.
Model aircraft in the Ansett colours over the years, and the audio visual display.
A display of the uniforms worn by Ansett flight attendants over the years, along with aircraft models.
The other airlines which were part of the Ansett Group over the times.
Model aircraft of the old Ansett fleet and some of the newer airlines now in operation in Australian aviation.
