Burdekin residents are being offered a one-off opportunity to see Flak – True stories from men who flew in World War II for free to commemorate the ANZAC Centenary.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis said the six residents who had already purchased tickets would have their money refunded.
“People will still have to come in and book a ticket at Council so we can allocate seats, but it will be a free event,” he said.
“It’s a great opportunity to hear the true stories of more than 50 airmen from World War II.
“This is a one-off opportunity for residents to enjoy this show for free and commemorate the ANZAC centenary.”
The stage show stars one of Australia’s most well-known comedians Michael Veitch who is best known for his television roles in The Gillies Report, Australia You’re Standing In It, The D-Generation and Full Frontal.
In Flak, Veitch takes on the roles of former airmen, recounting their extraordinary, true and largely untold stories in the air war of 1939-45 in an absorbing, wry and highly entertaining observation into the arithmetic of air warfare.
This enthralling stage production is based on the true stories of over 50 airmen that he first uncovered in his successful aviation books Flak and Fly.
Don’t miss this chance to learn about our history in this, the 100th Anniversary of Gallipoli.
