If one wanted to take some photos for thier own rememberance sake, what's the access landside to airside at Wigram? Through the old control tower I assume? Any security tag or such required or just bowl on through and watch the props? Only ever been there during various events.ReplyDelete
Ask and you shall receive !
At NZWG the best ones to ask if you want the full stroll is to climb upstairs in the Tower to the NZ Flying School.
I have never been refused - but often challenged in the last few months by others out on the field as to what I am about. This tightning up has followed recent theft of headphones from the DC-3.
So. Best get permission from one of the admin offices first, even if its from Pioneer or NZ Skydive.(and try to remember the person name you spoke with. Also I greet anybody out on the field and tell then what I'm about - Its good PR and also a good way to pick up rumours - like yesterday I gleaned that the Red CAT may be off to VH land soon (so I took more pics than I normally would have of it).
On occasion I have actually been escorted out by one of the students. Humour them.
The Canty Aero Club are having a fly in one weekend pretty soon (Their anniversary I think) of as many of their fleet as possible. Talk of getting more than 30 of their fleet over.
Remember; It will only take one person to stuff it up for all the rest.
Fair comments there Blue Bus. I remember going there and found it pretty cool to walk to the Convair and DC3 to see close up. Its a shame that wigram is closing. A lot of history will be lost.ReplyDelete
Thanks Blue, thought that might be the case. The days of open airfields are fast approaching an end sad to say.ReplyDelete
