Threatening skies, a storm and rain weren’t enough to stop the Kingaroy Aero Modellers club enjoying a weekend of flying fun.
The club’s annual fly-in attracted about 100 aviators on Saturday, with many camping at the club airfield for another day of action on Sunday.
They relaxed and chatted under marquees as they took turns on the airstrip, or snacked on boiled peanuts prepared by club president John Box.
The aircraft taking to the sky ranged from gliders to helicopters and everything in between.
There was aerial acrobatics from big 200cc craft down to tiny drones sporting video cameras.
Running repairs were the order of the day for some of the flyers after their craft suffered premature landings.
And the sights weren’t only in the air.
On Sunday, local car enthusiasts put on a display for the visitors to admire.
