Air show?s heady heights

THE sky above Raglan will be abuzz with aircraft of all descriptions at the 14th annual Old Station Fly-In and Air Show next weekend.

Almost 10,000 people and 250 aircraft are expected to flock to the two-day show, held at the Old Station.

Show president Allan "Kiwi'' Andrew said the show was unique across the nation.

"It's held on a private property for the public,'' he said. "Nowhere else in Australia allows the public to view and touch aircraft.

"The public are spoilt.''

Mr Andrew said people had previously flown from as far away as New Zealand to join in.

Highlights on Saturday include aircraft activity all day, RAAF Roulette sunset display and Gold Coast band Retro. On Sunday, the air show will go from midday to 2pm. Other features are the full Roulette show team, children's amusements, homebuilt crafts and warbirds.

Static aircraft inspection and joy flights will also be held on both days.

Admission charges include $10 adults and $5 high school students for Saturday night, and $15 adults and $5 high school students for Sunday's airshow. Children are free.
