A magic clearance from the dying southerly produced a beautiful afternoon at Rangiora today (Sunday 14-10-2012) for the Canterbury Recreational Aero Club's (CRAC) open day.
Below is a selection of the local aircraft.2 (c/n 08081901) has just completed its ten hours flight test schedule.
Below is Dave Provan's ZK-CFX (c/n 1009) looking down from its lofty perch.
2 (c/n 20111415) provided the reflection of the Peter Collins Ibis Magic GS-700 ZK-PLC with the revitalised Denney Kitfox 111 ZK-KNZ behind the check list.
The Club Captain Grant Porter rolled out his Avid MkIV ZK-JHW (c/n 1434D) for the multitude to wonder at.
Now in new hands; the Paul Godfrey Denney Kitfox ZK-KNZ is active again after several years parked in the back of the hangar.
The begining of vector 07 is in the bottom of the photo, and 10 begins just by the Blue Rans S-6.
