RESULTS OF THE RNZAC NATIONALS AT

TAURANGA FEB 2014

Well done, 2014 National Competitions team!

Fresh from the Nationals at Tauranga…Our  team have done us proud winning the premier trophy – the Wigram Cup and the Ivon Warmington Trophy (Liferaft dropping) and placing 2nd= in the North Shore Trophy for team with the highest overall points across the competitions.

Graeme – they let Brazil keep the World Cup after they won it 3 times so maybe the Ivon Warmington is all yours now!

Graemes bombardier Mike Fleming is off to Melbourne in April as part of the Kiwi Wings Trophy team after winning the wildcard qualifier for the Forced Landing.

Great result.

Hexacopter View of the Drome

To get a better overview of the Hastings Aerodrome Manager Kevin England asked if I (Tim Whittaker) could get images and video using the Photodrone. It was very windy and on the boarder of being flyable but as all the planes were lined up we gave it a go. Hawkes Bay Today photographer Glenn Taylor on the camera controls for the first time did a great job!
