Bazflyers to Oshkosh 2019, and a Couple of Others

With Oshkosh 2019 in full swing I thought I would highlight some aircraft with New Zealand connections:

The aircraft and crew that has the closest connection to New Zealand is Piper PA 24-250 Comanche ZK-BAZ2 that Barry (bazflyer1) and Sandra (bazflyer 2) Payne of Taupo have flown from New Zealand to Oshkosh around the Northern Pacific rim.  They have a really good website which incorporates a blog on which you can follow their progress.

After Oshkosh Barry and Sandra will continue around the world as an Earthrounder flight, and for which they have designed the above fin roundel.

However there are other aircraft at Oshkosh with New Zealand connections:  above, Rod Lewis's Mosquito FB VI N474PZ touches down.  This was registered ZK-BCV earlier this year.

And the New Zealand designed Falcomposite Furio N861SA is also there.

You can see live feed from cameras at Oshkosh at:  for the Vintage area  for the Warbird area, and  for the Microlight area.
