Takaka Dawn Flyin from Above

Jordan Elvy flew across to the Golden Bay Flying Club's Takaka Dawn Flyin in Cessna 172M ZK-DRP from Paraparaumu.  They were one of the last to arrive and Jordan took this photo of the gathered aircraft:

I counted 29 aircraft shoehorned in, and with ZK-DRP that makes 30 visiting aircraft.  It is just as well they didn't have any more turn up!


  1. Spot on counting! There were 31 aircraft that turned up for the dawn raid and as you say, there wasn't much more room. We had to squeeze in between the little shed and the blue RV at the bottom of the pic!

  2. We did get 47 one year including a BN-2 islander
