On Saturday 30-11-2013 the 50th anniversary of the Waimate Aero Club was held.
A strong south westerly wind no doubt kept some of the smaller aircraft away.
Above is a view, from the Club House, towards some of the visiting aircraft .
A trap for the aircraft spotters was the Cessna 175 ZK-BCR (c/n 55658) over from Wanaka with Shaun Gilbertson.
The Hanmer Springs based Cessna 182T ZK-JRY (c/n 18281923) of Paul Hood.
Murray Patterson came up from Taieri in his Cessna 180 ZK-MDL (c/n 32882).
Also from the same area came the Ray Eden Rans S-6S Coyote ZK-SGS (c/n 01071793) .
A gusty south - south easterly arrived about sausage sizzle time - with ZK-CUE and ZK-SID beating the change.
The Ashleigh Palmer Piper PA-28-180 (c/n 28-4343) on final preceded by Sid in his Cessna 172S ZK-SID (c/n 172S9523).
