Tocumwal to host biggest air show in 30 years on Saturday.

By Daniel Hughes

The Tocumwal historic aerodome will host its biggest air show in 30 years, full of acrobatic aerial brilliance, history and exhibits on Saturday.

The day will feature World War II fighters and bombers, airforce heritage planes, more than four hours of aerobatic shows from a range of planes, including the 'Avenger', appearing from Paul Bennet Airshows, as well as delicious street food trucks and market stalls. 

It will be a day to look to the skies, while the children enjoy the family-friendly `kids zone', including a jumping castle and face painting.

"There will be some cool things to see and do on the day," Murray Border Flying Club member Matthew Loffler said.

"The Avenger is sure to be a crowd pleaser. We're hoping for some fairly large numbers and are expecting a great day."

The gates open at 9 am with a free shuttle bus running throughout the day.

If you are looking to stay grounded, there are a range of ground displays of vintage planes and hot rods to see.

The Murray Border Flying Club and Paul Bennet Airshows will host 55 planes throughout the day.
