Record numbers of aero fans streamed through the gates of the Lismore Aviation Centre on Saturday to experience a thrilling adventure for the third annual Lismore Aviation Expo.

Close to 10,000 pairs of feet swamped the Lismore Aviation Centre on Three Chain Road during a postcard perfect day with clear blue skies.

As well as joy flights and scenic flights on planes and helicopters, the expo delivered aircraft and helicopter displays, drones and model aircraft, vintage cars, street machines, and emergency services and defence force displays, just to name a very few of the draw cards.

The day for all ages definitely had the show stolen by headline act the Paul Bennet Airshows Aerobatics whose thrilling performance in his yellow and redWolf Pitts S1-11X enchanted sky watchers of all ages – the ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ were delicious!
