Piits S 1E ZK-PEG at Bridge Pa Dawn Flyin 28-7-2019

Jordan Elvy travelled up to the Hawkes Bay and East Coast Aero Club's dawn flyin at Bridge Pa yesterday where there was good weather and a good attendance of aircraft.  Most have been posted here previously but one that caught my eye was John Luff's Pitts S 1E from Wanganui.  I haven't seen a recent photo of it outside.  Its history can be seen at:

Although it is registered on the CAA website as a Pitts S 1E, it can be seen that it is heavily modified with a Falcon symmetrical wing, and it also has an extended rudder.  Single seat Pitts's seem to have been prominent lately.
