My dad, Barry Douglas Parker and I went down to Temora via Yass on 5th of March 2021. We hired a snappy Toyota Corolla with a 10 speed gearbox. We arrived in Cootamundra and we stayed in a tiny but clean motel, Bradford Motel. It was little indeed. I made a mistake in booking a room. I thought we had a double room but in fact I hired a double bed single room. So in haste, the motel owner found me a spare old mattress for myself to sleep on the floor!
Saturday we left Cootamundra to go to Temora Airport to watch the fantastic Airshow. One fact. RAAF is 100 years old on 31st March.
