Landing Competition at SAANZ Flyin Whitianga

Due to the closure of Tauranga Airport for practice flying for the Tauranga Airshow, SAANZ aircraft had to relocate to Whitianga for their flying competitions. I thought I would call in to see what was happening. I was just in time for the landing competition and I photo'd the following efforts:

Technam P2002 Sierra ZK-SJS coming up short. It is owned by Stephen J Robinson of Thames and is ex ZK-SRG.

Too high! Re-engined Auster J5Q Aiglet ZK-BLW sails by for another attempt. It is owned by BV and SJ Freemantle of Waharoa.

Just past the line. Wittman Tailwind ZK-RET got close. It is owned by Noel Izard of Te Awamutu and is also re-engined, having first flown with a Rover V8 conversion.

Close but too short. Pulsar ZK-PXB is owned by Brian Anderson of Havelock North.

And the winner was Cliff McChesney flying the Waihi Aviation Group's Pulsar ZK-KFC. He was very close on all his attempts.
