The skies over Tocumwal along the New South Wales-Victorian border were filled with aircraft both old and not-so-old over the weekend as the town held its inaugural airshow.
On Saturday, the local airfield played host to a number of flight displays that included jets, warbirds, bi-planes and aerobatics.
There were also aircraft on static display alongside historic vehicles, as well as children’s entertainment, market stalls and food trucks.
The line-up included the CAC Wirraway, Grumman Avenger and L-39 Albatros. There was also a formation flight of RAAF heritage training aircraft.

Tocumwal was the location of a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) station during World War Two. Between 1943 and 1944, it was the site of the RAAF No. 5 Operational Training Unit and then later No. 7 OTU.
