Check-up for Wingham’s Vampire Jet

Filed under Council, Midcoast LGA, News ~ by Press on  24 Mar 2020

Wingham Central Park’s Vampire Jet will be completing its health check soon.

At last year’s inspection the base was in good condition.

In this second stage, scaffolding will be erected around the jet to enable engineers to undertake a detailed assessment of the integrity of the structure while workers carry out essential maintenance.

Scaffolding provides access into the plane to inspect the connection between the plane and the support pillar.

A grant of $10,000 from the NSW Government matched with Council funding of $10,000, has been allocated for assessment of Wingham’s vampire jet.

These funds enable us to ensure the integrity of the memorial is maintained and restoration works are undertaken to this important feature of Wingham’s town square,” said Council’s Manager of Community Spaces, Recreation and Trades, Dan Aldridge.
