For as long as anyone can remember there has always been an August flying event at Watts Bridge. And building on that tradition is the Gathering of Eagles - Australia, with no greater aim than to celebrate the Freedom of Flight. Pilots of all aircraft types rallied to the call with in excess of 50 aircraft in attendance.
General Aviation and Recreational Aviation were in abundance with an excellent roll up by the vintage aircraft such as the venerable Tiger Moth and Auster. Also on show for the first time was the long awaited Sopwith Pup replica which is nearing completion and several other recent completions or restorations.
