Anzac Pup for Anzac Day

Photo of the Anzac Pup taken at this year's Wings Over Wairarapa airshow on 23 February:

The Vintage Aviator's Sopwith Pup ZK-AFS2 is painted to represent N6185 from 4(N) Squadron RNAS which was the aircraft flown by 21 year old Australian pilot Flight Lt Charles J Moir in May 1917.  It originally bore the code A but the letters NZAC were added. 

The first Anzac Day commemorations in New Zealand were held at Tinui near Masterton on 25 April 1916 and TVAL provide a fly over of some of their aircraft to the modern day Anzac Day commemorations at Tinui.
