QWVAA – Picking The Lock
With the gradual easing of travel and assembly restrictions, members of QWVAA gathered at the airfield for an impromptu gathering – “Picking The Lock” you could say. It certainly was not a planned day out. Rather: Starting mid-morning a variety of warbirds simply arrived at the airfield, sometimes singly, occasionally in company. Aircraft types included a number of YAK’s and Nanchings, a Trojan T28, an RV something and a Comanche twin.
As it happens – it was quite a windy weekend, with 15+ knots from the South West arriving on both days. Though not shown in the photo gallery about 1/2 a dozen of the recreational and light general aviation aircraft based at the field had been quite active earlier on both days. Several went for a fly up to Kingaroy on Saturday with others deciding to stay closer to the field and fly local.
Bottom line is: It’s great to see the first tentative steps being taken towards more normal social activity, people getting out and doing things, following their passions and kick-starting the country !!
