Three Nice Vintage Warbird Aircraft Pop into CQ Airports - And Spotted at Longreach Airport

Over the last couple of days, a nice trio of vintage warbird aircraft have been transiting through various inland Central Queensland Airports after originally departing the South-East corner of the state.  Their ultimate destination is not fully known.

They were identified as Aerostar YAK-52TW VH-POW, North American Aviation T-28B Trojan VH-RPX and Nanchang CJ-6A VH-TWF.

On Tuesday 14 July, at least two of the three warbirds were noted departing Watts Bridge Airfield and landing at Roma Airport for fuel.  They then continued to Charleville Airport where they spent the night.

Then on Wednesday 15 July, all three warbirds departed Charleville Airport and were photographed above arriving in formation into Longreach Airport.

They then reportedly continued to Winton Airport, but as mentioned, their final destination is unknown.

UPDATE!  On Monday 27 July, the Aerostar YAK-52TW VH-POW was noted departing Gladstone Airport for Watts Bridge.
