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.
