'ERE IS THE SUNDAY 7.8.16 FLYER IF YOU WALK, PUSHBIKE OR MOTORCAR TO KYBONG AIRPORT (GYMPIE QLD)
Archerfield Air Force will be there with 3 x 172s and a 182, a few tents, and a bottle or 2 of Jack for the cold.
This is going to be a huge event,it has been extremely well planned and put together.
Aircrew and aircraft will be welcomed on the Saturday afternoon to camp overnight at Cumulus Airpark,where they can enjoy a spit roast around a huge bonfire. Musical entertainment will be provided.
The open day itself is on the Sunday,where aviators and aviatrix can display their aircraft to an expected very large crowd.
Again on the Sunday their will be entertainment,family activities,motor car and bike displays,plus the Gympie Aero Club will be giving away 30 Trial instructional flights through the local flying schools to encourage aviation in the area.
We would really love you all to attend,either fly or drive in,either Sunday for the big day or earlier for the Saturday night fun.
If you would like to display your aircraft, fly in for the day or come and camp under the wing of your aircraft the previous night,it would make it easier for us if you would RSVP. ( phone numbers on previous posts)
This is a Fly in not an Airshow,so come and have a wonderful day at Gympie Aerodrome.
The weather is going to be good,we have had a huge response from pilots,aircraft owners and the general public saying they will be attending.
All the music acts,stall holders,kids entertainment have been confirmed for the day.
We have several car and motor bike clubs attending to showcase their vehicles,plus two large Helicopter companies will have a machine on display.
Gympie Glider Club,our powered aircraft flying schools,will be doing TIFs and joy flights,plus Tandem Skydive jumps will be also available
The RAAF have confirmed that a C130 on a training flight from Richmond will make its presence known at approx 11.30 am with we assume some sort of fly past.
To top all that off,for all you aviation enthusiasts there will be lots and lots of aircraft on display.
The Saturday night before at Cumulus airpark which fronts on to the main runway has again had a huge response with 130 RSVPs so far for the $10 a head spit roast and entertainment. This all starts at 5.30 pm, so fly in on Sat. afternoon,set up your tent and enjoy the evening with us.
Breakfast the next morning will be provided by the Gympie Aero Club at a nominal charge.
There is still time to RSVP for the dinner,camping and breakfast,other than that just fly in for the Sunday.
It's going to great. " See you there "
What an amazing weekend. Thank you to the organisers for the most incredible arrangements for Saturday night. The food was awesome, the bonfire really special.
Visited on Sunday. Good crowd and displays.
One suggestion is they should have had a speaker system to describe the various aircraft on takeoff.
The Mustang was well airborne, followed by other unrecognisable war birds.
I had to go off track a fair bit to get to Gympie on Sunday morning, the whole of the Brisbane Valley was covered by fog.

Toogoolawah to the West.
Though we didn't put our machine on show, had to leave early Sunday to go to work, we came up from YCAB Saturday. Under the weather... Low and slow, gyroplanes are great for that! Had a great Saturday evening, food, music and bonfire, a truly mellow time. Thanks for putting this on Gympie, next time I'm hoping work doesn't interfere :-)
