Did you spot the MiG-29 jet fighter buzzing Kingaroy paddocks at the weekend? Or perhaps the Japanese Zero coming into land?
Then there was the dogfight between World War I biplanes …
The warbirds belonged to members of the Southern Cross Air Force, a keen bunch of aero-modellers who brought their scaled-down aircraft to the South Burnett for a social weekend of flying.
The Kingaroy Aero Modellers Society (KAMS) hosted the two-day fly-in at their clubgrounds.
Thirty pilots took part in the event, with many camping over at the grounds.
KAMS vice-president Darryl Dove said all the Southern Cross Air Force (SCAF) models must be based on aircraft that have been used for military purposes … by any country, at any time, including trainers, fighters, bombers and helicopters.
World War II Axis aircraft joined Soviet aircraft and the USAF’s F-117 Nighthawk stealth attack aircraft in the skies over Booie.
SCAF president Nic Case, from Tin Can Bay, said it was the first time the club had held a social weekend in Kingaroy and thanked KAMS for their hospitality.
