Wings and Things back in the sky this weekend

Exhilarating airshow, Warrumbungle Wings and Things, is set to take flight above Coonabarabran once again - this time bigger and better, much to the delight of locals and visitors.

The event, which was postponed earlier this year, has been rescheduled for this weekend. Coonabarabran Aero Club vice president, Geoff Gasior, said there would be two-and-a-half days of aerial action.

“Most of the planes and the pilots will arrive on Friday and they will be ready to take scenic flights that afternoon,” he said.

“Then there’s the main show on Saturday, followed by more flights on Sunday.”

There will be a range of planes on display and in the sky, from the popular World War II P-51 Mustang through to the modern machines that 2019 Red Bull Air Race World Champion, Matt Hall, wields with great finesse.

All the amenities will be available on the day with plenty of parking and the Rotary Club will put on a barbecue. Showgoers get all that for just a $5 gate entry fee.

“We really wanted to make it affordable so the whole family can come along and enjoy the day,” said Mr Gasior.

“The first Wings and Things last year was huge and we’re expecting this one to be twice the size.

“It should be a fantastic day for everyone and it is another attraction to add to the list of amazing things to do in Coonabarabran!”
