Wings over Wairarapa 2015 - The Vintage Aviator Limited

Contributions by the resident Vintage Aviation Limited collection at Masterton Airport is a key part of the Wings over Wairarapa airshow programme. The delicate nature of these rare World War One era aircraft dictates a high level of care required for them to fly and as such it is not always possible for them to fly especially if wind speeds exceed 15kts - which sadly was the case for portions of the Saturday show and for the entire Sunday preventing any flying whatsoever (and for the entire Friday).

However here is a collection of shots taken during their flying slots on the Saturday. 
Thanks to Sir Minty for providing the identification of each aircraft!  No probs Mike - and I made your posted photos bigger!
