Bill Izard in Wittman Tailwind ZK-RET
(From Foxhill Airfield KihiKihi)
Zoomed in from Masterton as I had my old tail Wheel of my Jodel to pass onto him.
He apparently did the MS to HS sector at 168 knots and his HS to HN sector at 150 knots not bad for a home built.......
Wittman W8 Tailwind ZK-RET (c/n AACA/386) was built by Ray Thurston of Blenheim. It was registered on 15-12-1980 and first flew on the 20th.
Ownership moved to Bill Izard of Masterton on 06-03-2003 and then to Cliff Bellingham of Pukekohe on 22-07-2003.
It returned to Bill Izard, now of Te Awamutu, on 18-09-2011.
All above pics taken at Hastings by Nick Furmage.
Pic below was shot at Masterton on 18-01-2013.
