It is with great sadness we have to announce that Warrumbungle Wings and Things is cancelled this weekend.
There was a tragic plane crash at the Coonabarabran Airport, where a much loved and highly regarded veteran pilot has lost his life as the result.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing investigation into this plane crash, event organisers cannot ensure the Coonabarabran Airport will be fully operational to host such a major event so regretfully have no option but to cancel Warrumbungle Wings & Things, both 22 and 23 April, 2022.
Wings and Things would like to thank everyone involved for their huge support and can only apologise for the unavoidable late notice of cancellation into this event.
Refunds – if you have already purchased a ticket through 123 Tix, refunds will be issued throughout the next week. As this is such a recent incident, other items such as this are being looked into and thank you for your patience.

In the early months of 2021, the Coonabarabran Aero Club in collaboration with Warrumbungle Shire Council made the decision to expand the club's horizons and put on an event which could be enjoyed by both pilots and the general community, thus, Wings and Things was born.
The event brought together local community groups such as the Coonabarabran Car Club, VRA Rescue Squad, Rotary Association, Coonabarabran High School and local vendors selling food, homewares, plants and jewellery, as well as approximately 1500 people from Coonabarabran, Dubbo, Mudgee, Tamworth, Gunnedah, Gilgandra, Narrabri and Sydney. The turn out was greater than the club could have expected and we were truly astounded by the success of the inaugural Wings and Things event.
The drawcard for the event was the attendance of 2019 World Champion Red Bull Air Racer Matt Hall who put on a brilliant aerobatic display, gave a motivational speech about his career, and gave a number of private joy flights which blew the socks off those who participated.
The club also hosted Warrior Warbirds' Nanchang CJ-6 and a helicopter both of which were doing joy flights all day. For those who preferred their feet on the ground, the Coonabarabran Car Club brought out their beautiful cars, trucks, busses and bikes, old and new, for the community to browse and the Coonabarabran Rotary put on their ever-popular bbq which hit the spot on a cold april day.
Attendees from near and far had only lovely things to say about the day, which couldn't have gone ahead without the tireless work of the Club and the Shire to pull it all together.
We look forward to Wings and Things 2022, which is sure to be bigger and better than ever.
