A NUMBER of residents from Euroa and district attended the biggest aviation event in Australia last weekend.
Ross Carrington from the Seven Creeks Estate, Jenny Houghton from Maygars Hill Vineyard and Mark Carr from the Benalla Aviation Museum were just some of the residents who took part in all the action at the 2015 Avalon International Airshow.
The airshow was part of the Anzac centenary celebrations, with displays by warbirds including the Spitfire, Kittyhawk and Mustang, as well as the Australian Defence Force’s latest military heavy metal.
Mr Carr said the airshow was fantastic with a lot of interest in his Winjeel military training aircraft, which was exhibited as part of the Benalla Aviation Museum’s display at the show.
“We had so much interest that we were invited to the 2017 airshow which is great,” he said.
“We flew back in formation but unfortunately couldn’t stop in Euroa. But we’re hoping the show helped put our region on the map.”
