Our local Town Dalby has had it's 2nd show named the Dalby 'Wings and Wheels'. It really is a great show for a town of a population of 10,000 max. Admission was gold coin and our whole family enjoyed it and I'm really glad of our small town for putting on such a good day. You may enjoy to see what I enjoyed as I tried to capture the memories. All taken with my GF1 and the 14-45mm lens. As the name implies, it is about aircraft and cars!

Shows that the GF1 is a very capable camera. I hope this isn't too long:rolleyes: Catch ya.....

The morning started by the cool flag drop

Came across this FORD T Bucket and a supercharger off a Detroit Diesel fitted on top. Lot's of grunt here.

A friend getting zipped up to go for a joy ride with my brother in a ultralight called a drifter.

The night was finished off by fireworks and some of the cars displayed earlier in the day did burnouts until they popped their tyres. Cool stuff.
