Red Thunder 2015

14th-17th May

This weekend saw Watts Bridge seemingly invaded by a squadron of Eastern Block aircraft.

In reality Red Thunder offers warbird operators a great opportunity to refine their piloting and flying skills with activities such as flour bombing, streamer cutting and formation flying.

Female Komrades (Natasha's) can partake in a variety of social occasions such as a seafood luncheon, art gallery and antique shop visits. Everyone comes together for the Red Air Squadron Dining Inn Night held at the Toogoolwah Hoteliski.

Though warbirds, these aircraft - predominantly Yak's and Nanchang's - are really colourful with many sporting "nose art" themed on their country of origin. But best of all is the sound of those big thumping radial engines. A formation of 10 or more flying overhead is quite awe inspiring!

Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield requests that all members and visitors using the airfield's internal roads adhere to the signposted maximum Speed Limit of 20kph.

The Speed Limit maximises safety for all motorists and pedestrians, significantly reduces damage to the airfield's roadways and minimises the generation of dust which has an adverse affect on aircraft, buildings and human health.
