Flying NZ National Competitions
26th – 28th February
All the best to our team for a successful competition in Whitianga!
I found some old footage from a club flight around the south island from 2005. From memory around 7 planes went on the jaunt in perfect weather. Its a reminder just how great these club expeditions are!. Apologies for the sad editing (improved alot since then).
Great weather for the Dawn Raid
Thank you to all our dawn fly-in visitors. The club kitchen and bbq’s were kept busy delivering hot breakfasts to flyers from about 7.30am through to 9am as aircraft arrived in at an easy rate. Those from Hawera had the longest journey, Dannevirke made the earliest arrival and from the north Gisborne battled here though a good headwind. A little frosty underfoot but not a bad day for winter, snow on the hills made a nice backdrop to the fly-in.
Tim Whittaker created this short time lapse video as the sun rose. More pics in the gallery.
Frogley Cup results? The third and final round. Congratulations go to Waipukurau who retain the cup for another year (last one though).
