COMING UP THIS MONTH! Callide Dawson Flying Group (CDFG) Thangool Fly-in and Races - 22-24 July

The Callide Dawson Flying Group (CDFG) will be holding their second biennial fly-in at the Biloela / Thangool Airport over the course of Friday 22 July to Sunday 24 July - specially to coincide with the Thangool Races!

The big three-day program kicks off on the Friday with the majority of aviators and their aircraft expected to arrive at the Thangool Airport before a "meet the pilots" dinner.  More aircraft will arrive Saturday morning before one of the highlights of the weekend - the Thangool Races at the nearby Thangool Race Club on the Saturday afternoon.

Following the races, there will be an official opening of the Fly-in followed by dinner and book launch.  The night will be capped off by entertainment until late!

Sunday sees early breakfast and market stalls before aircraft will steadily depart home during the latter part of the morning and the afternoon.

Food and drinks will be available at the Fly-in all weekend and there will be raffles and both fixed-wing and helicopter joyflights available from local operators.

The CDFG invite all interested aviators and aviation enthusiasts to attend the three day event, along with members of the general public who would like to have a look!  All proceeds of any monies collected will aid the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) and Angel Flight.

The photos in this post are from the inaugural CDFG Thangool Fly-in held in 2014 which incidentally coincided with the 25th anniversary of the Callide Dawson Flying Group.
