Foxpine AOPA Flyin Today 7-6-2020

If any evidence was needed that the sport flying community was bursting to fly to a flyin, the answer was given today when 51 aircraft showed up for a fairly short notice flyin at Foxpine Aerodrome organised by the owners.

Jordan Elvy was there and here are some of his photos:

Locally based Thatcher CX 4 ZK-TCX has not been featured on the blog since 2012, but is obviously still looking good and presumably is airworthy.

John Luff probably had the fastest en route time to Foxpine in his Glasair SH-2 taildragger ZK-JDL, coming from Wanganui.  And the Stratford crew can be seen in the background.

Maxair Drifter ZK-XPA was down from Feilding.

Tecnam Astore ZK-AST2 now comes from Paraparaumu.

As does Alpi Pioneer ZK-PJM2

and also a couple of Jodel D 11s:  ZK-DYB,

and ZK-ECU.

Stinson 108-2 Voyager ZK-VGR came from Hastings

And there were a couple of De Havilland's finest there also:  DH 82A Tiger Moth ZK-BMY from Palmerston North, and DH 60G Gipsy Moth ZK-ADT from Hastings.

Thanks very much for the photos Jordan.
