EYES were turn­ing sky­ward this time last year, with the Airlie Beach Air Show bring­ing some of the best aer­o­batic pi­lots to town.

These death-de­fy­ing high fly­ers bent the laws of physics and brought smiles to many lo­cal faces.

Hosted by Whit­sun­day Air­port, the 2015 event was wel­comed back after a four year gap.

Over two big days, the air show saw craft such as the Wolf Pitts, Wir­rway and T-28 Tro­jan take to the skies.

A stand out proved to be the RAAF Roulettes, putting on an in­cred­i­ble aer­o­batic dis­play in their iconic red planes.

It wasn’t all about vis­it­ing tal­ent how­ever, with lo­cals the then Whit­sun­day Tiger­moth Ad­ven­tures wow­ing the crowds.

Cruisin’ Whit­sun­day added to the en­ter­tain­ment, let­ting lo­cals get a first-hand look at their clas­sic rides.
