DESPITE a crash landing early in the day, Saturday's Wings Over Warwick event later enjoyed huge crowds and good weather.
About 9am, emergency services were called to attend a forced landing at the Massie Aerodrome.
Fortunately, the pilot escaped unharmed. It is understood a fuel leak was behind the incident.
The dramatic scenes were no deterrent for visitors, with countless people taking to the skies during the day.
Warwick youngster Kayla Carney waited patiently before leaving the ground behind and hitting the skies in a joy flight.
"I can't wait to get up there. It is going to be so much fun," she said.
Other guests, including Warwick couple Paul and Jenny Guy, had their feet planted firmly on the ground.
Mr and Mrs Guy brought their classic 1930 tourer to the event for others to admire.
Mr Guy said he loved to show off his car, which was one of three classic cars in his garage.
"We get a lot of people who stop and ask what kind of car it is, and for other people it brings back memories," he said. "People will say, 'My dad used to drive one of these' and it takes them back to those childhood days.
"It's also a great way to keep the heritage alive, and a lot of kids have never seen these cars before."
