Lancair owners from across Australia convened in Mudgee over the weekend for the national group's annual fly-in.
It's the second time in recent years that the Lancair Owners and Builders Organisation Australia (LOBO Oz) brought the event to Mudgee, which was held at Hangar House that's now owned by one of the founding members of LOBO Oz Gary Burns and wife Kaye.
LOBO Oz president, Gary Weeks, said that the get-together is a way to share information about the experimental kit aircraft and keep owners safe.
"They've come from all over the country - some from as far away as Western Australia and South Australia," he said.
"These are very high performance, home-built planes and they demand a bit of respect when it comes to flying them.
"So we're about safety, training, helping people with type-specific maintenance, systems knowledge, and staying current and up-to-speed with the aeroplane.
"There's a lot of expertise among our members and it's varied, and everyone contributes to help the group as a whole.
"It's a small group, there's not too many Lancairs in Australia, but they are magnificent planes and they need that bit of respect."
In addition to the Lancair sessions there was the 'Herks and Heros' presentation by US guest speakers Col (USAF ret.) Jeff Brown and CMSgt (USAF ret.) John Spillane - the latter was Chief Master Sergeant, is the ninth, and highest, enlisted rank in the US Air Force.
