DID you know that the Boston bomber on display at the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage was painstakingly assembled at RAAF Amberley from the wrecks of seven downed WW2 bombers retrieved from the swamps and wilderness of Papua New Guinea? And that the aircraft is also known as a Douglas Havoc?

Visitors to the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre Open Day this Sunday can learn about the history of the Boston and other fascinating facts on a tour guided by enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers.

A special feature this Sunday is entertainment from the Ipswich RSL Youth and Community band, and visitors can enjoy a sausage sizzle and delicious barista coffee.

4. Murder and Mystery



THE 1980s are back in a blaze of fluoro! Join an evening of dance, food and murder and steam into the night where all is fair in love, war and rail travel. The evening includes all entertainment, a two course meal at the Ipswich Country Motel, followed by a vintage bus ride to Swanbank station then a 60 minute train trip in 1900s varnished timber carriages through the twilight bushland surrounds of the former West Moreton Coal Mines.

A hot, humid evening in November 1984 and it is the final week of 'See the Stars Dance', the hit TV show where celebrities compete to take the crown. Three couples remain but only one can win. With a fearsome trio of judges, who will emerge victorious? Can you become a detective for the night and solve this terrible crime? Then join the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway and watch the murder mystery in action and get stuck in as the plot unfolds before your eyes.
