The weather over Auckland was also spring-like today, so a trip up to North Shore Airfield was in order. When I was there I bumped into Trevor Dance who was just pulling out his Slingsby T 67 Firefly ZK-TZX out of the hangar to go flying, and he had a spare seat.....
ZK-TZX (c/n 2050) on the ramp prior to start-up.
Lined up on Runway 21.
Climbing out over Whangaparaoa with Stillwater in the foreground.
Looking up Bon Accord Harbour on Kawau Island with the Coromandel in the distance.
The Spirit of New Zealand anchored off Snell's Beach and in the lee of Kawau Island.
And on finals for North Shore, it's a pretty narrow sealed strip.
Thanks very much for the flight Trevor. It was great.
