Last weekend I went to the Parafield Airshow. It was the usual mix of planes old and new, and a slight change in the orientation of the show meant that the lighting was great. The warbirds on display included a Yak-9, Harvard, Nanchang and Yak-52. I always enjoy seeing the brute force of the Trojan, and hearing the sweet roar of the Rolls Royce Merlin in the P-51 Mustang. Aerobatics were ably represented by Chris Sperou in his Pitts "Super Stinker" and the amazing home built DR107. The glider from the soaring club at Gawler also put up a good show. Of course, the RAAF Roulettes put on a great show in their Pilatus PC-9 trainers.
