Dargaville Today 31-1-2017

Summer weather without the wind seems to have finally arrived in the North, and there was great flying at Dargaville over the last couple of days.  Here are a few shots:

Early morning fog burned off to provide really smooth flying.

 Approach to Runway 04 beside the Northern Wairoa River, with the SH 12 bridge to Dargaville.

Looking down the river with Dargaville on the left.

And heading to Ruawai for some circuit practice - very narrow!.

The Dargaville Aero Club's Storch ZK-DAQ2 off on a cross country to Whangarei.

And a couple of visitors did touch and goes:

the North Shore Aero Club's Cessna 172S ZK-DMW2.

and Southern Wings Alpha R 2160 ZK-SWY from Ardmore.

Dargaville is a popular destination for visiting trainers, no doubt helped by the lack of landing fees.
