Cr Rod Heit and Cr Kathy Duff inspect a two-seater gyrocopter at Wondai Airport

November 19, 2013

Wondai Airport has a new hangar thanks to the hard work of members of the Barambah District Aero Club.

Cr Ros Heit and Cr Kathy Duff did the honours on Saturday, cutting the ribbon to officially open the new hangar after club secretary Luke Radunz gave a brief speech thanking all involved, particularly the club members who willingly gave of so much time to complete the project.

Luke also thanked the South Burnett Regional Council for their support and said he appreciated the good communication between the club and the council.

The Wondai & District Town Band then entertained the crowd and the club put on a barbecue followed by “Camp Mother” Joyce’s own plum pudding and custard and rum balls.

The Wondai airport is home to the local gyroplane club.

“I was invited for a spin in a gyroplane… what a thrill that was,” Cr Ros Heit said.

“We flew over the Wooroolin wetlands. After the recent rain the green pastures contrasted beautifully with the red soil and the glistening wetlands, what a fabulous spot the South Burnett is!”

The Wondai & District Town Band were kept busy on Saturday … playing at the Wondai Airport hangar opening and also at the Wheatlands State School centenary
