    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

    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.
