Flying in an open cockpit wind in the hair, with ww1 flying ace Paul, is a magical way of viewing magnetic island and Townsville. A truly amazing experience not to be missed.

We loved our flight over Townsville in this magnificent aircraft. You get a great over-view of the city, Castle Hill, Strand and Magnetic Island. On our list to do again.
