Evans fly-in touted to be best yet
And that’s saying a lot, because the Evans Head fly-in during the 1990s was nothing short of spectacular.
“Every year this event is evolving,” said Gai, secretary of the Great Eastern Fly-In committee.
Along with a squadron of interesting modern and historic aircraft, there will be a line-up of classic cars.
All the fun begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday, January 4.
Gai, whose father flew Catalina’s on the Sydney to Brisbane run, and is a passionate aviation enthusiast, says visitors to this year’s fly-in will see champion aerobats in action.
Unlimited Australian champ Tom Moon will show off his Extra 300S while Matt Hall, a competitor in the Red Bull Air Race will show us mere mortals how to drive a Giles 202.
Mr Hall, who has since resigned from the RAAF, operates his own display aircraft, a specially built Giles 202, and aerobatic aviation company, Inverted Downunder.
Also on four wheels will be a rich array of classic cars from the Gold Coast Pony Car Club, the Northern Rivers Vintage Vets, the Queensland Military Vehicle Club, Summerland Sports and Classic Cars and perhaps a few from the vintage caravan club!
There will be markets on Saturday.
