1st Fly-in in the World 2019

Hosted by the Central Hawkes Bay Aero Club at Waipukurau and billed as the first fly-in in the world for 2019 the event attracted over 50 aircraft of a wide variety of types. Some of these are new to the blog including the ICP Savannah S ZK-CCR registered to a Featherston owner in June 2018.

Vans RV12 UL ZK-DMB registered to a Hastings owner in July 2016

TL3000 Sirius ZK-KKQ from Masterton,  which was ZK-EBG in a previous life

Zenair CH701 STOL ZK-OUZ registered in December 2015 to a Levin owner

And the rarely seen PZL Koliber ZK-RTB from Greta Valley
