25 Year milestone for QFM in 2013
25 years ago a group of enthusiastic Longreach locals came together to ensure that there was a home for the Avro 504 replica. That same replica. is now the centerpiece display in a multi-million dollar museum that has attracted visitors from all over the world.
Over the years we have hosted Royalty, stars, and the traveling public, providing an insight into the foundation years of the Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Services or Q.A.N.T.A.S.
To celebrate this milestone, QFM heldg a dinner in August 2013 at the museum.
