WACO @ Caboolture Festival Of Flight 2011 by 

203 views as at 25 January 2013.
The Festival Of Flight 2011 was held at Caboolture Airport, north of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia over the weekend of 27-28 August 2011.

The Saturday was much muted due to the overcast weather and rain which stopped any visiting aircraft from flying in.

I was staying near Coolangatta Airport, south of Brisbane, which was closed for some of the day and large passenger jet use it – so it is no surprise that lighter aircraft could not fly.

Fortunately the weather cleared for the Sunday and this shot was taken on that day.

The aircraft is a Waco and is a design from the 1930’s – although, I think, this particular aircraft is a new build from only a few years ago.

The photo was taken with a Nikon D70 camera fitted with a Tamron AF Aspherical XR Di LD [IF] 28-300mm 1:3.5-6.3 Macro zoom lens.

The photo has been modified using Gimp software – brightness/contrast tools plus sharpening filter.
