Allan Bowman reports.
At was a beautiful morning at Rangitata Island to start with but the North wind increased through the later part of the morning to become very uncomfortable so restricted the number of light aircraft flying in.
Over a hundred people at the service.
The local ATC led the way from the service area to the wreath laying at the cairn in the Brodie's garden.
Rego’s included ZK-NFJ, LPB, RJL, PAA, JCL, DDG, the Les Vincent gyro OTM, FRJ and of course the resident squadron.
With the Brodie family aviation history stretching back to WW1 this was a beautiful place to gather and remember.
