August fly in 2018 had the most perfect weather for a good roll up of planes, take a few minutes to view the slider below from this busy fly in
  • Great breakfast, great company
——————————————————————————————————————–
February 2019 turned out to be a great day with a good selection of aircraft. It was great to catch up with new people with new planes. Thanks to all who turned up for a hearty breakfast and a great chat. Also thanks to Lance our Treasurer and photographer for these lovely pictures he has submitted to this site.

—————————————————————————————————————————————
The 2018 April flyin turned out to be another successful day, with the weather holding off in most areas. As usual the planes arrived in many different shapes and forms for all to enjoy. There is always something different to cast your eager eyes over. Thanks again to all who helped on the day, and those who also helped clean up on the Friday before. With many hands it made it so much easier for most of us. See you all at another great fly in.
 
            
 
 
 
 
 
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, Ron, 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.
We had another busy fly in with one pilot coming all the way from Mackay. 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.

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.
