The Festival of Flight 2008 got off to a remarkable start with the aircraft parking area virtually full by midday Saturday. And there was no let up, with a never ending stream of arrivals and departures. As if that were not enough for the thousands of visitors to the airfield, there were immaculate vintage cars, motor cycles and military vehicles on display as well.
The Queensland Vintage Aircraft Group are to be congratulated for all the effort that goes into making the Festival of Flight the success that it is. Also a big thank you for the local community's support of the event, assisting with everything from catering to car parking.
But the big winners were the aircraft themselves, from the heaviest meanest warbird, the most nimble of aerobatic aircraft to the "flying for fun" recreational aircraft. For those who couldn't make it and anyone else who simply can't get enough of vintage aircraft the photo gallery has many photographs taken at the event.
