This is a fabulous family day out, full of the thrill of spectacular and noisy flying displays by classic old aeroplanes, modern light aircraft and even a sprinkling of military muscle.

Tyabb airport has long been at the forefront of Australian aircraft restoration and there are some real gems hidden away in and around its hangars & sheds.

The Peninsula Aeroclub organisers are bringing together an array of historic war-birds and light aircraft, including the venerable Tiger Moth, World War 1 Sopwith Pup and Sopwith Snipe replicas, classic warbirds like the Wirraway, Mustang, Trojan, Kittyhawk and a rare Vought F4U Corsair straight from a 15-year rebuild. Add to that the likes of the Ryan Trainer, CAC Winjeel, T28 Trojan and some jet blast from the L39 Albatross jet-trainer and you've got a real airshow on your hands.
