WIRRAWAY SET TO PERFORM ANZAC DAY AERIAL SALUTES

The aerial salutes for this year’s regional ANZAC Day Services will be performed by a WWII Wirraway CA-16 MK3 fighter/light bomber and sponsored by the Bundaberg Regional Council.

Built in January 1945, the aircraft saw service with the RAAF in the final stages of the war and was retired about 9 years later. In the early 1990’s it was fully refurbished and rebuilt at Caboolture taking to the skies once more in 1997.

The scheduled fly-pasts for regional Services follows:

Bargara                              6.10am

South Kolan                      6.25am

Rosedale                            6.35am

Bundaberg                         9.45am

Gin Gin                              10.05am

Childers                             10.20am

Woodgate                          10.35am

Elliott Heads                      11.25am

Moore Park Beach            11.45am

Burnett Heads                     2.50pm

Circuits of the township of Coral Cove, Innes Park, Bargara & Burnett Heads will take place between 11.25am & 11.45am as the aircraft travels up the coast

With a top speed of 600 km/h, the Wirraway is fully aerobatic and will be arriving in Bundaberg on 23rd April.

Earlier this month, Owner/Pilot, Ross Parker generously donated an adventure flight which was auctioned at the Bundaberg Rising Race Day to raise funds for the region’s flood recovery efforts.

Additional adventure flights are available on Wednesday 24th April at a cost of $500 which includes a 20 minute tour of the region with optional aerobatics included for those with a strong stomach. Anyone wishing to book a flight can leave their details with Greg Barnes on 0488 539 123 by COB Tuesday 23rd April as Mr. Parker is currently overseas.
