NZ Warbirds at Ardmore Centenary of the Armistice Open Day 18-11-2018

The NZ Warbirds at Ardmore held an excellent commemoration of the Centenary of the signing of the Armistice today (actually it is one week after the centenary but that was just as well because the weather would have cancelled the event one week ago).  The weather held out and there was very little wind which allowed their fleet of WW 1 aircraft to fly their displays - the first time I had seen any of them flying.

 TVAL built Royal Aircraft Factory (RAF) BE 2e-1 ZK-VCM.

Classic Wings/JEM Aviation finished Fokker Dr 1 Triplane replica ZK-FKD2.

And Frank Parker's "new" American built Bristol Scout Model D replica ZK-BTL2 with an 80 HP Le Rhone rotary engine.  It looked and sounded great and I love the smell of castor oil!.
