Some more pics from Caribou taken at Omaka over the Easter weekend.
"Where there is smoke - there is fire". In this case it's the Chariots of Fire Fighter Collection's Flug Werk FW190 A8/N ZK-RFR (c/n 990001) starting.It is giving the Beaver ZK-AZB a taste of its own medicine from its Ash82T engine.
More smoke as North American Harvard 52 runs in front of the multitude.
Harvard 52 is ZK-MJN ( c/n 88-13909). It had been taken on charge by the RNZAF as NZ1052 on 19-07-1943 - It was withdrawn and stored at Woodbourne in 1972 and then went up to MoTaT in about 1978. It was on display there until sold. The new owner was Mike J Nicholls whose initials were utilised in its NZ civil registration of ZK-MJN from 02-06-1987.
It has been listed with the Harvard 1052 Syndicate since 11-12-1991.
Six of the Fokkers !
About to taxi out is the Pitts 12 ZK-PTS (c/n 180) belonging to John Eaton. It has a supercharged Vendeyev M14 engine - 400hp I believe and an MT prop.
