Hawera on 22-4-2018

Up the road from Wanganui, Hawera was also also in the sun.  The Hawera Aero Club operates on Sundays so their aircraft were outside.

Cessna A152 Aerobat ZK-UNB (c/n A1520920) has not been posted on the blog before.  It is ex VH-UNB and has been owned by the Hawera Aero Club since 21/6/95.

and the club's Cessna 172N ZK-EOS (c/n 17272633) is another long time Hawera Aero Club aircraft, having been on line with them since 1980.

The club's other aircraft, Aeroprakt A-32 Vixxen ZK-VHC was out flying in the local area.
However the star of the show was Brett Emeny's North American T 28C Trojan ZK-JGS which was visiting from New Plymouth.  I arrived just as it was taxying out.

then it clattered into the air and did some manoeuvres overhead.
