Every year, the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia (AAAA) carries out a number of ‘Toy Runs’ to collect Christmas toys for underprivileged children.
The NSW Toy Run is on Saturday 6 December at ‘The Missions on the Hawkesbury‘ private airstrip, Wisemans Ferry, starting at 10.30am
The SA Toy Run, in conjunction with the Barossa Birdmen, is on Sunday 30 November at Truro Flats, starting at 12.00 noon.
Weather willing, there should be a nice collection of aircraft at all these locations, including ultralights, GA and, of course, antique aeroplanes. Food and soft drinks will be available.
Even if you can’t fly in, come by road and see the heap of toys and all the aircraft on display.
If you are bringing a toy – and you will, won’t you? – please bring it unwrapped.
