CHOCOLATE eggs rained from the skies at Casino Airport on the weekend.
Model aeroplanes loaded with eggs spilled the Easter load in front of children waiting for the all-clear to make a grab for the chocolate eggs.
Tyson and Kevin Dodd have a property at Dyraaba and live in Sydney. They organised the Easter event with NSW Aeromodellers.
There were 120 aircraft and owners travelled from Queensland and Victoria to be at the Richmond Valley Casino Airport Fly In.
“The most expensive plane is $30,000,” Tyson said.
NSW Aeromodellers saw the fly in as a test run for a much bigger event in 2023.
The FAI World Aerobatic Championships is held every two years.
“The event was cancelled in the US because of covid,” Tyson said.
The committee were keen to hold a smaller event in Casino to check out the airport grounds and how Casino might handle model plane fliers from 40 countries attending the world championships.
They were pleased with what they saw and are already planning for the premier event in Casino in two years.
