This annual event at the Australian National Aviation Museum at Moorabbin Airport attracts hundreds of people, all in search of an aviation bargain or just an aeronautical browse.
You can't miss the museum. As you drive into the airport entrance from Grange Road, Cheltenham, you will notice several very large aeroplanes looming up on your starboard side (that's aeronautical speak for right). That is the museum and the site for the Aerojumble sale.
Maps, computer, protactor, and goggles. All items used in a bygone era.
Be it a hard to find a part for a vintage aeroplane or a book or magazine with an aeronautical flavour. Be it a piece of an aeroplane or an aircraft instrument. Be it a model aircraft or photos of aircraft. Chances are you will find it in or on one of the dozens of stalls scattered around the aircraft in the museum. Definitely an appropriate location for all the aeronautical wares on offer. Other items on offer will be aircraft models, photos, posters, ephemera and lots more.
A large number of aviation books and magazines are always on offer.
After over 50 years of collecting aircraft spare parts, both big and small, the museum is offering for sale many, many items that are not deemed necessary to restore and maintain their collection. Your opportunity to obtain a spare part for your aircraft or an interesting talking point on your coffee table.
Entry is at the normal museum entry fee of $10-00 for adults, concession $7-00, children $5-00, (under 5 free) and $20-00 family. Not only can you experience the market place atmosphere of all the stalls you can get close up and personal with the many aircraft on display.
The main attraction in the museum is this Beaufighter aircraft, built in Melbourne during WW2.
