Boomerang Visits QAM


An honoured guest at the recent Open Cockpit Weekend on 5-6 July was Matthew Denning and his magnificent CAC Boomerang VH-MHR. During his visit to Caloundra, Matt was presented with a framed certificate to commemorate his 30 years membership of QAM. Matt began restoring the Boomerang while he was still at school, and although he maintained his QAM membership throughout the following years, the Boomerang is a private project which culminated in a triumphant first flight on 14th February 2003. Matt's 28 year labour of love has been well covered in recent editions of "Classic Wings Downunder" and "Flightpath". One of the more outstanding aspects of the project was Matt's reverse engineering of the otherwise unavailable Boomerang wings and the subsequent supply of wings to three other Boomerang projects.

QAM congratulates Matt for his skill, determination and his sense of history. Matt's attention to detail continues to attract many accolades, all of which are richly deserved.
