It's on again!! The Old Station Fly-in and Heritage Show - hosted by the Creed Family at "The Old Station" farm at Raglan, about 50km South of Rockhampton - will be held from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 May 2015.
And again this year, Australia's own Top Gun pilot Matt Hall will be in attendance for the weekend, fresh off competing in the Japanese leg of the Red Bull Air Race 2015 World Championship.
The entire weekend is being hosted by the Old Station Flying Club, and the action is scheduled to kick off on the Friday afternoon, when aviators intending to participate during the weekend are being encouraged to arrive. This will be followed by a Friday evening dinner where Matt Hall will be guest speaker. Be sure to book for one of the limited seats!!
The Saturday sees most other aircraft arrive, followed by numerous flying displays - featuring Matt Hall!!
It's a great weekend at the Old Station Farm with camping available on site, and for plane spotters and aviation enthusiasts, there is a great mix of antique and new aircraft and helicopters on display. And we will be there again this year!!
The day also includes a heritage machinery and truck show with new and old trucks, as well as tractor pulling.
There is also plenty of food, a licenced bar, drinks, stalls, joyflights, a fashion parade, children's entertainment, and a live band on the Saturday night. There are also lots of prizes to win!
Admission is $15 per day by donation (with children under 12 free!), and camping charges start at $30 per site. All proceeds will aid the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service (CHRS).
