A flight filled with dancing and entertainment for Tim Strange's family and friends would not have been possible without him.
Mr Strange was the winner of Mona Foma's Air Mofo competition. The competition was won by the first person to find a plane hidden on a map of Tasmania.
On Friday, the party arrived. Flying from Sydney, Mr Strange and his posse of 159 friends and family were decked out in Mona Foma apparel and treated to one of the most memorable flights of their life.
He said it was as weird as he expected.
"I had no idea what to expect. I was a little bit nervous at first, but they but on an absolute party for us," Mr Strange said.
"There was performances, dancing in the isles, [and] singing."
Mr Strange said winning the competition was still very surreal.
"It's such an unusual prize and I've been explaining and again and again to people and they go 'so what have you actually won?' it's a little bit surreal, but we're really excited to be here now."
Qantas pilot Lorcan Young said it was "hands down the craziest flight".
"It's not often that we get to do charters like these ones. We only found out yesterday afternoon what we were actually doing for Mona," he said.
"So obviously the captain and the rest of the crew were all really excited to be involved."
He said his favourite part was the MC - Rochelle - who is an entertainer.
"We didn't quite expect all the colors and dresses and PAs and and music and dancing. We obviously had our job to do but I'm sure they were having plenty of fun back in the cabin," he said.
Mona Foma curator Brian Ritchie said the competition allowed some guests to come to Tasmania for the first time.
"It's all a lot of fun, but there is also a serious thing with it. It demonstrates the way that we want to attract people to come to Launceston and see what this great state and city have to offer," he said.
