Saturday and Sunday, 2nd and 3rd of October, the public are invited to the annual Fly-In conducted by the Museum of Australian Army Flying at the Oakey Airfield. Warbird operators fly in and display their aircraft, along with current Army aircraft, classic military vehicles, historic motor vehicles and classic motor-bikes and cycles.
The Fly-In is not an air show, and whilst the majority of aircraft arrive and are static for the two day event, there will be flying demonstrations through the weekend, including Tony Blair in his Rebel 3000 aerobatic aircraft. Joy flights in a P51 Mustang and a Sioux (Bell 47) helicopter will also be available.
The Museum will be open with its historic aircraft, including the latest addition, a World War I Deperdussin trainer. You will also be able to inspect a retired RAAF Caribou aircraft. Food and drink stalls are on site, with many other displays to suit visitors of all ages.
Entry is $5 for adults, while children under 12 are admitted free.
The Museum of Australian Army Flying is adjacent to the Civil Terminal at Oakey Airfield.
