A special thanks to:

  • Lincoln Nitschke
5DME recently visited Lincoln Nitschke’s Greenock Aviation Museum. We were greeted by Lincoln on arrival and after a short chat were off touring the museum. 


Lincoln’s interest in avaition began in his teenage years. Learning to fly and subsequently being endorsed on several aircraft. During his early flying career visiting airfields abroad was common. At one field there were aircraft lining the sides of the runway. He could have started his collection then. However, it was not until later that the interest in collecting was started.


THE MUSEUMThe museum which is located north of Adelaide approximately 3 kilometres along the Kapunda Road out of Greenock is host to a Camberra Bomber, a P51 Mustang, many static displays, photographs, pictures and a collection of over 1400 1/72 scale models.

Visitors can browse at their own pace and Lincoln is a rich source of information about the displays and aviation history.



Groups tours are welcomed and a barbeque can be arranged for groups of 20 or more. (conditions apply)



There is a museum Gift Shop with books and memorabilia. Local cottage industry produce and craftwork from the Barossa region is also available.
