The Lismore Aviation Expo 2018

The Lismore Aviation Expo 2018

Having grown up attending airshows around Australia my whole life, I was expecting an intense day of tyre-kicking and dry gusty winds yesterday at the 2018 Lismore Aviation Expo. How gleefully surprised I was by what turned out to be a glorious day of perfect weather, epic aerobatics, fantastic aircraft and genuinely interested and lovely aviation people of all ages. 

The early morning fog blanketed the airfield with a quiet ease as our Australian LightWing SP2000 took off from Ballina and circled above Lismore. Nick Hughes made a scenic flight to Casino, waiting for skies to clear, before heading back to Ballina to wait for the fog to lift and returning about 9am.
