Magnificent flying machines ready to wing in over Warwick

IT will be a parade of magnificent aviators and flying machines next weekend, when the popular annual Wings Over Warwick fly-in returns.

The Warwick Aerodrome will be flooded with visitors eager to get up close to all kinds of aircraft next Saturday, for the 24th annual event.

Queensland Recreational Aircraft Association president Kelvin Hutchinson said guests were in for a great day, with displays from local clubs, entertainment, food and of course numerous light aircraft that will delight aviation enthusiasts.

"We have a range of different aircraft, including general and recreational and we will also have some larger warbirds coming in from Toowoomba and around the district," he said.

Mr Hutchinson said he expected to see strong support for the airfield, which was a vital element of the community.

"There is a lot of flying for pleasure (at the airfield) and most people wouldn't know this, but the Royal Doctors regularly use it too," he said.

"The airport is looking the best it has ever looked and the council have always done a great job at maintaining it."

Anyone who is interested on learning to fly can find out just how to do that on Saturday.

Those who would like to experience flying in one of the aircraft can also arrange to do so.

Wings Over Warwick will be held at the Warwick Aerodrome, Massie-Bony Mtn Rd, from 8am to 2pm next Saturday, September 7.

Entry is free and funds raised on the day will be donated to CareFlight.
