WestJet will be heading to Wagin tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday as hundreds are expected to fly and drive to the Wagin air strip for three days of model jet action.

One of the models on display will be a Boeing 747-500 and an Airbus A380 is also expected to be showing. Wagin Aero Club are strong supporters of the event, and are keeping the airfield open to encourage visitors to arrive by air.
