The organisers of Mudgee’s Wings, Wheels and Wine have been blown away by how the festival came together on Sunday.
A crowd of around 3,000 people turned out to check out 170 exhibits, which included over 100 cars.
The Mudgee Aero Club hosted the event with Paul Bennet Airshows.
“I was impressed with the show too, I’ve been to a lot of air shows and this one was quite impressive,” Mudgee Aero Club president Gary Chapman said.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better day weather-wise.”
“There were a lot of out of town visitors, a lot of accommodation was booked up and the people who were coming from Penrith, Newcastle, and Wollongong, a lot of them stayed for three nights. A lot of those were the car clubs, they loved it, and some of them were saying ‘I wish we could get this kind of roll-up at our meetings’.
“There were a lot of highlights; the Mustangs [fighter planes] were great, so was the Hercules; and the Freestyle Motorcross was also incredible.”
