Movements at Omaka this week.

GMO reports on 'movements' at Omaka this week.
Activities relate to the re-vamping of the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre's World War-II hall 

The 'Dangerous Skies' World War-II hall should re-open in early September. 
The 'Knights of the Sky' World War-I hall has remained open throughout.

Leaving the museum display is Bill Reid's magnificent Anson Mk.I ZK-RRA, now at home in her brand new hangar. 
Part.115 adventure flights are now available in this aircraft, creating the incentive to take her out of the museum and closer to the flight line with her very own maintenance space etc. 
A  flight in this stunning restoration would be the ultimate gift or bucket-list item.
More than just a flight, it's a journey back in time.

An eclectic mix of machines take in the sun on a crystal clear Marlborough day today during the re-vamping.
Once the Bf108/Nord 1002 (c/n 285 and as yet unregistered in NZ) has had some 'inspect and repair as necessary' work completed, all of these aircraft will be airworthy and based out of the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre WW-II 'Dangerous Skies' display hall.
In the background are the Flug Werk FW 190 A8/N ZK-RFR (c/n 990001) and the Supermarine Spitfire FR MkXIV ZK-XIV (c/n 65-648269).
