Kaipara Flats Today

Finally another nice Saturday morning at Kaipara Flats airfield.  The Rodney Aero Club host a Cuppa and Coffee from around 10 every Saturday morning rain or shine and what a change from one week ago as we looked out at the rain (while the forecast said fine).

Rob Hill popped over from his property on the Mahurangi in his lovely Jet Ranger ZK-IAP3.  Here he is photo'd lifting off for home with the modellers behind.

The modellers have some neat planes such as John Marsden's Spitfire with a 4 stroke engine.

And the conditions just begged me to go for a little aviating - I went for a flight over to the Kaipara Harbour where it was quite hazy but so still!  If you think I am low I was descending into the low flying area around Tapora.
