    Yesterday I took the family up to Watts Bridge airfield for this years Festival of Flight. Its basically a vintage aircraft fly in where spectators are able to get up close and personal with some classic aircraft. There's no flying program, but the are aircraft are constantly on the go, making a very relaxed and enjoyable experiance. Anyway here are some pics, I'm not familiar with all the vintage stuff so feel free to educate me :)

    Probably my favourite aircraft of the day was this stunning De Havilland DH84 Dragon, simply beautiful

    What a cool group of aircraft, I bet you guys had a ball out there today!

    Nice stuff, Wildcat! :thumbleft: I recognized most of them, although the Yellow 44 has me stumped. It's not familiar to me at all, although I am not completely up on all of the old Eastern Bloc pistons.

    Thanks or the comments guys. Eric, the Russian bird is a Yak-18T Yakovlev Yak-18T - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    As for the Dragon, it was a 1930's airliner, however the RAAF used just under 100 in WWII as transports, air ambulances and navigational trainers.
    Next up some Winjeels..

    Since we only have one Winjeel in the US, it's cool to see more than one at a show. 8)
