This coming weekend is the 4th Wings & Wheels and it looks like being even bigger that last year.
This year there will be classic, touring and sports cars, vintage cars, classic and vintage motorcycles, stationery engines, hot rods, go-karts, and classic caravans, tractors and race cars, plus wooden boats. The ‘wings’ part will include all sorts of aircraft from vintage, through sports, rag and tube and ultralights, trikes, gyrocopters and general aviation light aircraft as well as model aircraft. A Winjeel Warbird an ex RAAF Fighter trainer has also confirmed attendance. The pilot and owner Mark Awad will be providing Warbird Adventure Flights for the public, and three passengers can be taken aloft at a time. See www.classicaero.com.au for more information. If the weather is good, a number of Tiger Moths (bi-planes from the 1930s) will be coming from Boonah and Luskintyre.
The local ‘Mens Shed’ will be in attendance as well the local stationary engine enthusiasts
The event is of course weather dependent so we are hoping for fine weather.
The general public are welcome to attend and get up close to cars, bikes and planes as the area will be cordened off, with the static display area available to the public. The aircraft movement area however, will be out of bounds to all but pilots and officials.
Food and drink is available on site and there are public toilets as well. Best of all is the event is free of charge and parking is also free. We will however be taking gold coin donations to be presented to the Childrens Ward at Grafton Base Hospital. Overflow parking is available along the wide verge in Vere Street.
