EVERYONE will be looking to the sky this weekend in Yarwun, with a flying display of warbirds on show.

Gladstone Model Aero Club is hosting the event, which is being run by the Southern Cross Air Force, a group of model warbird builders and pilots from clubs in south-east Queensland.

The flying and static display will be at the GMAC grounds on Guerassimoff Rd in Yarwun.

Club secretary Troy Josefski said it was set to be a great weekend, with at least 20 warbirds taking to the air.

"The speeds some of them go to is 350kmh," he said.

"This is the first time this year we've got the SCAF involved.

"We're looking forward to getting together clubs from across south-east Queensland to show off our new planes."

Mr Josefski said they would be flying the planes from 9am tomorrow until 3pm and Sunday until midday, with a display on Saturday night at 7pm.

Spectators are welcome, just bring a chair, said Mr Josefski.
