What a great day!
7 Aircraft. 19 Crew. 20 vintage and antique cars, great flying weather, hospitable hosts.
Thanks to Captain Mike Barnier for organising a great day for the enthusiastic club members. Between 9.30 am and 10.30 am the aircraft departed for Inverell North airstrip, a private runway on the eastern side of Inverell.
Mike had organised transport to the Inverell RSM Club for lunch and then back to the airstrip to view our host Bob and Susanna’s collection of cars. Fantastic! The shed/hangar alone brought a tear to a few of the assembled enthusiasts.
It was a slightly less calm flight home to Gunnedah. We were all back by 4pm for cool Coke on the verandah of the Clubhouse.
Thanks to all for reinforcing why we love to fly.

Well done Biggles!!
Please be advised that the Gunnedah aerodrome will be having heavy patching works completed on the second apron (areas between the 2nd taxiway and Ryan’s hangar) next Monday 23rd of January.
There will be people working on the area this week to prep it for the works to be completed.
A NOTAM is not required for the work as the main taxiway and apron will remain in use. The grass taxiway will be kept clear if they are working near the 2nd taxiway
Have a read.
This summarizes the great day of flying we had. You should have been there!
