Queensland Warbird & Vintage Aircraft Association
The Queensland Warbirds and Vintage Aircraft Association (QWVAA) represents a large group of aviation enthusiasts dedicated to “Preserving our Aviation Heritage”. Founded in 1975 as the Queensland Vintage Aeroplane Group, we were well known for the ever-popular Festival of Flight. The growth of our ‘Warbird Brothers’ has seen our activities expand into new initiatives, and we proudly sponsor the annual Red Thunder event involving both Warbird and Vintage Aviation enthusiasts alike!
Our membership profile consists of both civil, military, flying and non-flying members. Membership ranges from aircraft owners to enthusiastic aviation historians and photographers. The QWVAA Clubhouse facilities are based at Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield, offering the best of settings and airfield facilities.
Members enjoy benefits including :
- A quarterly newsletter full of interesting articles, news and information.
- Several organized aviation events including Red Thunder and regular Formation Training Workshops, and
- Several organized social events including the Watts Bridge for Watts for Breakfast?? fly-ins, BBQs, and various other social gatherings.
