Something Really Different at Kaipara Flats Today 12-5-2022

After several years of inactivity in hangars at Kaipara Flats airfield, Kevin Mills' Aero Gare Sea Hawk ZK-SEA completed a new Annual Inspection today and it was outside running and checking out a new prop that produced better static RPMs.

It was a spectacular day for flying in the North today, so after the Annual was signed off in the late afternoon Kevin took it out for a flight in perfect conditions and lovely late afternoon sun:

Annual completed.

After a thorough pre-flight inspection Kevin taxied out.

and into the very low late afternoon sun.

After a couple of high speed taxy runs he was off!

Climb out with the undercarriage up.

A very distinctive silhouette.

Looking good on approach.

And in for a nice landing.  Kevin flew several circuits and the Sea Hawk looked real good!
