MEMBERS of the Kronk family, fellow pilots and about 200 members of the Lockyer community attended a memorial service for Terry Kronk at the weekend.

Under stormy skies, close friend Barry Rogers spoke of his partnership with Mr Kronk while working each year on the Emu Gully Air and Land Spectacular and his passion for keeping the Anzac legend going.

"Terry had a passion that the Anzac legend should be kept alive," Mr Rogers said.

"He was an innovator, entrepreneur and risk-taker, though not reckless."

Mr Rogers said Mr Kronk was meticulous about the preparation and engineering of his replica aircraft, and was stunned to hear the news of Mr Kronk's death while he was in Palestine re-tracing the steps of the first Anzacs.

At the end of the ceremony, a memorial to Terry Kronk was unveiled, with aircraft enthusiast Bryce Wolfe placing Mr Kronk's flying helmet and gloves on the memorial.

Members from the Toowoomba Grammar School provided the catafalque party.
