Bah that looks like a ladies plane Turbo:wink:

 

Certainly looks like Kaz looks after her:thumb up: (Supposing the plane is also a she)

 

P.S. Now that you have posted a couple of pics from there Turbs we expect quiet a few more:yes:.

 

Maybe even a video of our local boy Brett with his 'superstol' landing display:happy:

G'day Tink. 

 

I was down there Thursday for the day. When did you go?

 

 

 

Regards Geoff

Went down yesterday, Friday.

 

Lara turnoff access was great, no traffic congestion, plenty of food, toilets, no traffic congestion on the way out, AAA rating for the show now.

 

Spent most of my time with the RAAF being told not to touch anything.

 

Some more photos attached.

Who's going tomorrow (Sunday)?

Hi,

 

I will be going on Sunday. Make sure you go to the GA/Airsport section and check out the 3/4 scale Spitfire built by my mate Chris.....

 

Cheers,

 

Neil

Join the queue to get up close to the outstanding gyro display, ( most flew in )

 

I'm hearing it's really attracting folks, it's been a long slog over many yrs, to get to this generation, one maker now night IFR certified Europe.

 

Well done to ASRA getting this organised for this event.

Did anyone take any footage of the WW1 display? Headed down today (sunday), but after the rain over night, the WW1 section was canned due to ground conditions :(

 

Was nice to see these up close on the ground, but would have been great to see them in the air.

Went on Friday & Saturday,

 

Very enjoyable, walked many miles, lots to see

 

The Airshow volunteers did a great job.

 

+1 for the many Gyros & the turbine mosquito helicopter.

 

I would like to see the next Avalon Airshow a Smoke free event ( humans that is, not the aircraft)

 

Every time you stopped to look at something, some A**hole would lite one up.013_thumb_down.gif.ec9b015e1f55d2c21de270e93cbe940b.gif

One of the best finished aircraft in the show

Beautiful Cessna there - Thanks for the pictures, much appreciated, but not everyone knows their planes.

 

Quite annoyed I couldn't get there, had everything arranged but ......there's always a "but" lately, sigh.

Hi Jay,

 

I was also disappointed the WW1 planes did not fly again on the Sunday - I saw them on the Saturday. I have some brief footage of some taxiing, and the triplanes taking off from the Saturday, but did not shoot the aerial display as I only had my stills camera with me, and video mode is not the best....

I went Sunday, and uploaded 91 photos here:

Unfortunately we had a storm and blackout on Saturday night while I was recharging my spare camera battery or I would have had more. You really need more than one day to see it all.

Thought I'd share a little something from the show on sunday...

 

Leading up to the show, I'd heard that the F22's from the US were only going to be a static display due to "operational requirements".

 

On the sunday found out what the operational requirements were. Apparently there is only 1 F22 pilot signed off to perform airshow demonstrations and he was taking a week off on holidays 001_smile.gif.2cb759f06c4678ed4757932a99c02fa0.gif. To quote the personnel who was telling us this, "The pilots who flew them in are ok to fly into and conduct combat missions...but not airshows, makes you think doesn't it?"

 

I thought that was funny...
