The Deniliquin Airport was bustling with people on Sunday for the Deniliquin Aero Club’s open day.
Locals were invited to a free open day that showcased all the club has to offer, with 10 planes on display and pilots from around the district including Echuca and Tocumwal landing their planes in Deniliquin.
People enjoyed perusing the planes, with some even lucky enough to go on a joy flight with Aero Club secretary and recreational pilot Andrew Gibson.
Local aviation businesses, Field Air and Wettenhall Air Services, both based at Deniliquin airport, were also on show.
Mr Gibson said ‘‘a couple of hundred’’ people attended throughout the afternoon.
‘‘There was a good turn out, we had one new member and the promise of a couple more,’’ he said.
‘‘It was also good for local vendors – Rotary cooked the barbecue and we had the ice cream van and coffee van.
‘‘We were pleased with the number of local planes displayed but we hope there will be more aircraft from other towns next time.’’
