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

QAM congratulates Matt for his skill, determination and his sense of history.
