Aarg! The events tab is coming up empty...
I gather that "open cockpit" refers to the museum displays? DC3 joyflights sounds good. I've been meaning to do a Melbourne run for a while, so this might be the excuse I need. Thanks for posting it up.
Moorabbin looks like the Melbourne equivalent of Bankstown airfield and museum.

Let me know if you are able to do the Melbourne run.
I spend a bit of my weekends hibernating in the archives.

The OCW is usually in October, and have additional cockpits in for the weekend.
Many of the aircraft are normally open to the public to get up close and personal with.

Some of the aircraft are in bits in storage/undergoing restoration and are off site not far away. You can ask to see them, if there is a volunteer available.
