Wings Over Warwick ready to thrill aircraft fans
IF AVIATION is one of your interests, Saturday's Wings Over Warwick event is not to be missed.
More than 100 aircraft will be at Massie Aerodrome for the fly-in meeting, including aircraft from the Oakey Airbase for the first time.
"They're keen to be involved and we see them as local because they use the aerodrome quite a bit," Warwick Aero Club and Queensland Recreational Aircraft Association
president Kelvin Hutchinson said. "We'll also have the Warwick Aero Modellers there and they will be model planes on display, the RAAF cadets will be there and they will be showing off-brand new gliders.
"There will be a spitfire and two tiger moths.
"It's basically an aviation expo. We're inviting the public to come along and see how aviation is progressing."
Organisers are expecting a strong turnout.
"We've got people coming from as far away as the Newcastle area," he said.
"There should be a good turnout - we expect a crowd of 800-1000 if the weather's good, which it is looking like it will be."
Mr Hutchinson said it was a good opportunity for anyone who wanted to know more about aviation.
"All pilots love talking aviation," he said.
"People will get lots of good information and it will be a good opportunity for people to learn any information they want to."
Wings Over Warwick: 8am-2pm tomorrow, Massie Aerodrome. Free entry.
