Waimate - Fifty years. 30-11-2013.

On Saturday 30-11-2013 the 50th anniversary of the Waimate Aero Club was held.
A strong south westerly wind no doubt kept some of the smaller aircraft away.
 Above is a view, from the Club House, towards some of the visiting aircraft .
 A trap for the aircraft spotters was the Cessna 175 ZK-BCR (c/n 55658) over from Wanaka with Shaun Gilbertson.
 The Hanmer Springs based Cessna 182T ZK-JRY (c/n 18281923) of Paul Hood.
 Murray Patterson came up from Taieri in his Cessna 180 ZK-MDL (c/n 32882).
 A local from just the other side of Town was Mark Rollinson's Cessna 182C N9074T (c/n 52974).
Also from the same area came the Ray Eden Rans S-6S Coyote ZK-SGS (c/n 01071793) .
 A gusty south - south easterly arrived about sausage sizzle time - with ZK-CUE and ZK-SID beating the change.
 The  Ashleigh Palmer Piper PA-28-180 (c/n 28-4343) on final preceded by Sid  in his Cessna 172S  ZK-SID (c/n 172S9523).
