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.
October fly in was far too wet for anyone to fly or drive into Angelfield, We had a good time antway and the food was great!
Another slab added to the OP’s Centre last month(October 2018)
JUNE Breakfast Fly in was a perfect day for flying and fly in they did! Just a taste of what flew into Angelfield on the day
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 April fly in was a bit on the windy side with quite a few aircraft flying in for a well earned breakfast.
It was a special day as Werner turned 89 and Helena put on a small celebration for him.
The 2017 February fly in was going to be a scorcher and the planes rolled in early and kept many of us very busy, especially Charlie who worked tirelessly all morning on the BBQ. Thanks again for all those who donated their time to make this special day happen.
Our Safety Seminar was held in early November and about 20 people attended. There was a lot of goodies to give away from CASA and RAA and anyone who comes along to the Brekkie Fly-ins can obtain some valuable material left over from the seminar, all free.
Gayndah Aerodrome is open and the strip is a dream to land on, the North Burnett Regional Council have done a tremendous job on rebuilding the runway, taxiway and new emergency facility. The new Fuel facility is in full operation and has Avgas and Jet fuel available. Call in and check out their top class runway.

We all enjoyed the country hospitality where we met many friendly faces at the Heartland market day held at the showgrounds where an amazing array of produce and products offered by many locals of the Wide Bay/North Burnett district.

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.
