This past weekend saw the Old Station Flying Club host their 26th Annual Old Station Fly In and Heritage Show, in Raglan. The show welcomes pilots and their aircrafts from all over Australia and the world.
The Old Station Flying Club had staged a unique and very popular Fly-in air show annually from 1989 to 2007. In 2011 the format of the weekend was altered to include tractor pulling and a truck show. Now renamed The Old Station Fly In & Heritage Show, the weekend continues with the tradition of great hospitality and friendliness.
“In my lifetime (knocking on 70) I have been to many air shows in Scotland, England and USA, as well as Australia and I have to say this was the equal of any and better than many. Thoroughly impressed by the organisation, no awkward gaps between the superb performances. I will try to fly in next time!” said attendee, Derek Liston.
The show is run by a group of volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the show is run successfully and all proceeds from this weekend went toward aiding a very worthy charity, the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service.
Organisers sent thanks to the food venders, stall holders, air show pilots, truckers, tractor pullers and said, “We honestly couldn’t do it without you all but we would most definitely like to thank the Creed Family for once again being the backbone for the whole event.”
“A fantastic weekend! Congratulations to all of the organizers and volunteers. Your efforts are appreciated and we realize that many, many hours of your own time go into organising and running this event. Thank you,” commented Brad Lang.
