    Well, the lead up to this event has been pretty hectic if I do say so myself.
    For the last couple of months the lads have been flat out water bombing and fighting Bushfires, only let up a week ago.

    Now all that gear and aircraft will need maintainance and servicing, cutting in to the prep time for the Airshow next weekend, just a bit of pressure

    All this week my days have been disrupted by the roar of one type of plane or another.........keep the bino's on the bench outside the workshop, but by the time you hear the faint rumble over my lathe or mill, make safe and dash out to have a look, it's just a full throttle roar and the plane disappearing behind the trees.

    Monday it was a T6 tearing up the sky, Tuesday it was good to see the engine back in the Kittyhawk and doing a few test runs, Wednesday a bit of formation flying from a few Winjeels, Thursday Ross had the Hurricane up, Friday was a mix of Mustang, Spitfire and various others........good job I had today at the range, else nothing would get done.

    So it's all go for next Sunday here in Scone.

    Planes have been flying in all day, just came in from watching a few doing passes over the airfield.
    Most impressive full throttle roar from a Trojans Radial, and a more subdued Focke Wolf 190.

    Boy that "Butcher Bird" sure has got a good set of paddle blades what I would not give to see that plane close up and all the others hope you can get some good pics Muffett we here in the West do not have an airshow why would we, as we are that far behind the rest of Aus the eastern states think we do not exist.

    Nice pic!

    Well, that's it until next year..............unless you follow the Airshow Circuit.
    Some birds did not take to the air due to a nasty wind shear over the strip, but there was enough to keep me entertained.

    Ran Pursuit for a short time, till my pilot scared himself a bit, which was okay as the plane we had had bad Perspex panels, which buggered up most of my Air shots.
    Will post the pic's on The Birds are out and About Thread, may as well keep all the pic's together.
