Look to the skies

The last weekend of the month won’t only see action down on the Harbour with the KISS Arts Festival, but also in the skies with hi-tech and historic aircraft in the air at the Wings Over the Illawarra Air Show.

A Fw-190 will be one of the star attractions of this year’s flying display, as it is the first time the restored German WWII fighter plane has been on show in Australia. The plane is painted in the scheme of Red 1 flown by Luftwaffe Ace and recipient of the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross, Hans Dortenmann.

It is hoped that it will be third time lucky for the event, which has been rained out on the last two occasions.

Details: 30 April and 1 May, Albion Park Airport http://www.wingsovertheillawarra.com for details.
General admission from $37.50 for the Saturday.
