85 YEARS FOR AERO CLUB

The sky over the Hunter was the scene of an aviation milestone this morning, as the Royal Newcastle Aero Club celebrated 85 years of flying.

There was a formation of a World War Two Wirraway and three Pitts Specials, then two formations of Cessnas.

The aero club began in 1928 at Broadmeadow, and is now based at Rutherford.
