I Remember When...

When airshows could go ahead as planned (and in great weather as a bonus).  A case in point was the Wings Over Wairarapa airshow held at Hood aerodrome (in happier days for these 2 aircraft), on 17 and 18 January 2009:

The Air Tight Trust's Goodyear FG-1D Corsair ZK-COR was there flown by Keith Skilling,

and The Old Flying Machine Company (NZ) Ltd's Curtis P 40E Kittyhawk ZK-RMH was also there, flown by Stu Goldspink I think.

Maybe we will see these two ex RNZAF warbirds at Classic Fighters 2023? - that would be something to look forward to.


  1. Is the Corsair still tired up in that court case still hence no fly.

  2. Yes both the Corsair and the Kittyhawk are tied up in a legal case and have not flown for some years.
