STEWART Webb from Casino is the winner of the Beef Week Mr Beef bull horn crown.

Guests in their hundreds gathered to watch 10 male contestants strutting the catwalk at the much-anticipated Mr Beef Competition on Saturday.

There were many worthy contestants, however Stewart Webb, who has vied for the crown three times, was a crowd favourite.

His dance with a broom prop saw him strip off his white overalls to reveal a bow tie, white suspenders and black, g-string underwear.

About 600 people turned up to watch the Mr Beef Competition.

Family Aviation Day

CASINO Beef Week took to the skies for the festival's final weekend, attracting aviation enthusiasts and young fans to the Fly-In Muster.

"This is an amazing facility, it's a huge facility and there's lots of potential for it," former Air Force pilot Craig Jones said.

"It's great just to keep the awareness the facility is here, and it's just a fun day out as well."

Casino Beef Week Fly-In Muster president Russell Kennedy said it was a great way to get kids involved with aviation.

"The model aeroplanes are very popular with the kids," he said. "It's also to show people you don't actually have to have a lot of money to buy an aircraft."

Lismore-based recreational pilot Andy said the event helped demonstrate that flying is a hobby available to everyone.

"Days like today brings it to the public that there is still flying available and it's quite affordable," he said.

"The cost of an ultralight (aircraft) is no worse than the cost of a boat."
