The gorges have been carved out by erosion over millions of years providing a spectacular viewing experience made even more special when combined with the sensation of being part of wartime history. The T6 has a sliding canopy for protection from the elements and a high seating position providing an excellent viewing platform. The fighter pilot training heritage of the aircraft means that you can also take the brief opportunity to see the world from upside down at some stage during the flight, if desired.

warbird-02Boeing Stearman Gorge AdventureMillions of years of erosion created the gorges and waterfalls of the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park and they provide a million dollar view for intrepid aviators. The nostalgia and romance of the open cockpit “Stearman” Biplane adds a new dimension to the experience transporting you back to the golden era of aviation in the 1930′s. The Stearman provided basic training for thousands of military pilots before and during WW2 and is universally loved for its robust nature and docile handling. You may also choose to enjoy a brief “upside down” experience at some stage during the flight, if desired.

T6 “Texan” Aerobatic AdventureThe T6 was designed as a trainer to hone the skills of fighter pilots in WW2 prior to advancing on to the Spitfires, Mustangs and other high performance fighters of the day. So good was the T6, in this role, that it continued to serve with many armed forces around the world, long after WW2 and the last was retired from military service in 1995. Naturally this aircraft is highly suited to aerobatics and the noise, power, and layout of the aircraft provide a very authentic WW2 fighter pilot experience. All manoeuvres demonstrated are positive “G” including loops, barrel rolls, aileron rolls and various other aerobatic manoeuvres, as desired.
