Australian aviation legends come to life when the Legends of the Skies Theatre Inc, (LOTS) present a series of short plays on the life of these aviators.

Actors
From last years production.

Presented in the fictional "Terminal 7 LOTS Domestic" space at Parktone Primary School, corner McSwain and Robert St, Parkdale, the ensemble will enlighten their audience about the rise of Ansett Airways, the first and only aviator to fly while pregnant from England to Australia, the sole Aboriginal pilot of WW2, and a wonderful larrikin Flying Doctor.

Also featuring, with a nod to pantomime style, will be a delightful little plane, Diana, owned and operated by women, plus a local story focusing on how we live our dreams.


All previous six productions of LOTS were performed at the Australian National Aviation Museum at Moorabbin Airport, with aircraft as the background, but this year space requirements meant an alternative venue was needed.

Actors
Last year's performance in the aviation museum at Moorabbin Airport.

A highlight of this year's performance will be featuring the life of Len Waters the only indigenous RAAF fighter pilot of WW2. Indigenous actor James Williams will play the role of Len. LOTS has secured the services of two didgeridoo players to add atmosphere to the performances.
