MANY years have passed since the Old Station Flying Club was first created in 1989 by the late George Creed.

And during those years a number of highly successful fly-ins and air shows have been held at The Old Station - the farm owned by the Creed family near Raglan.

A total of $230,000 has been raised by these events, with proceeds initially being donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and in more recent times to the establishment of the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service.

It's quite normal to have up to 250 aircraft of all shapes and sizes, plus heritage trucks, tractors and machinery at the event these days, and this year's fly-in and heritage show on May 23, 24 and 25 is expected to be just as spectacular.

Add the inclusion this year of Australia's Red Bull air racing champion Matt Hall, plus other new features and it will be an event that just can't be missed.

But what of the organisation? What about the Creed family - why are they so passionate about the legacy left by George Creed?

Make sure you pick up a copy of this Saturdays Observer so you can see the full rundown of the weekend and the passion that's behind it all.
