June Breakfast fly in 2017
This month saw many little jobs completed at Angelfield. The barrel stove has been a winner and the new stainless work bench is now finished thanks to Graham, Ralph, Paul & Charlie. it was a task that took some time but well worth it and was well used on Saturday. It is a great addition to the OP’s Centre.
Another busy fly in with one pilot coming all the way from Mackey. Thanks everyone for coming and hope to see you again in the near future.

Gayndah Orange Festival Breakfast fly in a day to remember
About 50 planes or more flew in for the Orange Festival, many came early to take advantage of our breakfast that was served next to the Gayndah Emergency Centre. A team from Burnett Flyers worked like clock work. It was busy there for a couple of hours and local Councilor John Zahl ferried flyers to and from the Orange Festival and Gayndah Historic Museum driving a courtesy bus supplied by Ken from the Golden Orange Hotel/Motel. A big thanks to all those involved to make this event happen for all to enjoy.

Water tank being installed at the back of the hangar. The tank was funded by  Ergon Energy Community Partnership Fund for alternative energy . Angelfield is completely stand alone and  operates power, communications and water independent of the grid. The airfield was designed to operate in  emergencies without outside services and can be accessed in flood by ambulances and emergency equipment.  The Burnett Flyers is an Ergon Community Partner. We thank Ergon for recognizing the value of our efforts for the community.

Others enjoyed a wine, cheese and art night at the Gayndah Art Gallery on Friday night. . Thank you Gayndah for your hospitality. Thanks to the Big Orange Motel owner for being our taxi guide and driving us over to visit the Gayndah Railway Station where we had the restorer show us several First Class Heritage Railway Dining cars.  It was great to see a good roll up of aircraft at the Gayndah Aerodrome, looking forward to revisiting this lovely town soon.
