NZ Civair is 10!

Many NZ Civair readers may not be aware that the first post on the blog was on 13 December 2007.  You can scroll down the yearly list at the right of the home screen to see it.

Over the years our various contributors have posted 5,861 posts and we have had over 3,703,300 page views (despite the counter on the home page showing less as it wasn't turned on from Day 1).

To celebrate this auspicious occasion I offer this photo of our esteemed leader, suitably posing among some interesting aircraft.  Well done on your efforts over the last 10 years Sir!

I also offer a heading photo taken around 5 years ago, to remind us of what we are missing for this airshow season.

Finally I would like to thank all who have over the years posted to the blog or commented, or just have been interested.  To quote The Flying Doctor, Dave Baldwin (having just read his book): "You know who you are!"  Special thanks must also to go to Mr MRC Aviation who had the computer smarts to set up the blog all those years ago.

I look forward to the next 10 years.

  6. I'm another daily (or close to it) visitor for at least the last year. I love the variety of subject matter and the hidden gems that pop up from time to time.
