Grumman TBM Avenger at Matamata 16-1-2016

Brendon Deere had his TBM-3E Avenger ZK-TBE2 painted as NZ2518 at Matamata.  This was the first time I had seen this aircraft up close and it sure is big!  Also, Matamata offers really nice opportunities for photos, so I took quite a few.



 Pilot Jim Rankin is good to go.

 Taxying.  From this side you can just see the name "Plonky"on the forward fuselage.

 Take off.

 Nice passes - showing the top side.

 and underneath with the bomb doors open.

Then in for a landing.
