Warbirds to honour veterans
THREE historical warbirds will be gracing the skies over Lismore on Anzac Day in a display of aviation prowess and to acknowledge and remember the exploits of Australia’s war veterans.
A T-28 Trojan and two Yak 52s, supplied by Warbird Aviation Australia Pty Ltd, will be taking off from the Lismore airport at 10am on Sunday as part of a salute at the start of Lismore’s Anzac Day March.
Northern Rivers Aero Club Recreational Pilot Centre chief flying instructor Bill Kiernan said the fly-over was a ‘show of our history’ and was not meant to distract from the march.
“Anzac Day is all about the fellas (war veterans), it’s their day ,” Mr Kiernan said.
An L-39 Albatross advanced jet trainer will be also on show at the aero club on Anzac Day and for $1600 you can experience the thrill of being a jet pilot.
