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!
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.
Jimbour Trip 2016
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.

—————————————————————————————————————————————Thanks to all who supported the Heartland Festival. 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. 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.
