KIM ROLPH-SMITH operates adventure flights and aerial shows, from Brisbane and has been flying vintage aircraft for 20 years.
To this year's Great Eastern Fly-In he brought a T28 Trojan built in the USA in 1952 and a Yak 52 made in Russia 10 years ago. His son Cameron was also at the aviators' gathering.
He and his family have been part of the fly-in for 18 years.
"We want to make sure that the airport remains open in Evans," he said.
"Everyone loves it. It is a great venue, very safe as there are not many buildings around and nobody is disturbed by noise."
He met visitors from Perth, Melbourne and New Zealand.
Mr Rolph-Smith was also happy to see some rare warbirds at Evans Head.
"The P-51 Mustang has a lot of history from WWII, so does the Wirraways we saw here this weekend," he said.
Big crowds and fine weather ensured the day's success.
