Northland Microlight Club BBQ at Kaipara Flats Today 9-12-2017

As we are now resident at Warkworth I was very pleased to drive the 10 minutes out to Kaipara Flats airfield where the Northland Microlight Club was holding a pre-Christmas BBQ hosted by Tim Harrison in his spotless hangar.  Around 20 aircraft were on the field including some of the locally based aircraft that were out in the sun.  It was a great day and the BBQ lunch was great too.

and Warren Butler flew his A 32 Foxbat ZK-WCB (his initials) up from Mercer.

while Steve Williams came the other way, from Dargaville in his A 22 Foxbat ZK-CKL2

Mike Hopper flew his Fly Synthesis Texan 600 ZK-TXS2 from Whangarei.

and Aerodrome IT Systems Tecnam P 92 Echo Super ZK-CDL2 arrived from Parakai.  It has Fly Parakai on the rudder and is fitted with a ballistic recovery parachute.

I will post more later, next time I feel like a McDonalds Coke float!
