Faux SAANZ Flyin at Hawera 10-3-2018

With the cancellation of the SAANZ flyin at Waipukurau over the weekend, Peter Nunn from New Plymouth organised an alternative flyin at Hawera, where the weather forecast was better.  It turned out that way with a stunning day on the Saturday and I heard that the Sunday was pretty good too.  I don't know what the weather turned out to be like at Waipukurau, but it certainly would have been marginal in the days leading up to the cancelled flyin.

With the flyin just down the road, Nick Furmage flew down from Stratford in the Aero Club's Zenith CH 601 to have a look:

About 25 aircraft were there when Nick arrived, including quite a few from Tauranga as well as the Wilkinsons from North Shore and Rex Newman from Omaka.

The Hawera Aero Club's new Aeroprakt A 32 Vixxen ZK-VHC (c/n 040) was outside.

 As was the resident R & B Bearhawk ZK-PBH (c/n P308).
