As the fifth and final post covering some of the action captured at Old Station Fly-in & Heritage Show 2017, we take a brief look at Matt Hall Racing, and other aircraft that flew in for the event.
The most common aircraft Matt uses to perform aerobatic displays is Extra EA300L VH-IOG. Specifically built as a high performance aerobatic plane in Germany in 1999, VH-IOG is powered a very capable Textron-Lycoming AEIO-540-L1B, 6-cylinder engine.
Another regular attendee at Old Station Fly-in's is Paul Bennet Airshows, and often ferry's a number of exotic aircraft to the event including Grumman American Aviation Corporation TBM-3E Avenger VH-MML as featured in a previous post.
Accompanying VH-PVB this year was Amateur Built Pitts 12 VH-TYJ. Of interest, this aerobatic plane is powered by a Russian designed, Ivchenko M-14P, air-cooled, 9-cylinder radial engine.
And as always, the annual fly-in at Old Station Farm never fails to attract a huge variety of aircraft and helicopters that not only fly-in from the local region and further afield in Queensland, but increasingly from interstate locations.
Until next time, we hope you enjoyed our coverage of Old Station Fly-in & Heritage Show 2017.
