The RAA Oshawa District Recreational Aircraft Association on Sunday, August 28, hosted its annual fly-in at Hawkefield Aerodrome. The private airstrip is situated 3.5 km northwest of Orono, Ontario.

The friendly gathering of pilots and enthusiasts featured a range of aircraft types, including warbirds, certified aircraft, ultralights and amateur builds. This event is considered the biggest gathering of Oshawa area pilots and aviation buffs.

This year’s fly-in was highlighted by the presence of the mighty P-51 Mustang, WACO Classic Aircraft, Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum Noorduyn Norseman MK. V and The Antonov AN-2.
