Grumman Avenger landing, Evans Head Airport by 

576 views as at 5 February 2013.
One of two Grumman Avengers owned by Steve Searle that visited the recent Fly-in held at Evans Head Airport to celebrate seventy years of the airport and its survival from attempts by developers to close it.

The Avenger is on a landing approach across the main road into the town.

Evans Head is located on the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. Turn east off the Pacific Highway at Woodburn and drive for 11 kilometres.

The photo was taken with a Nikon D70 camera fitted with a Tamron AF Aspherical XR Di [IF] 28-300mm 1:3.5-6.3 Macro Zoom Lens used at the 300mm end. It was also fitted with a polarizing filter.
