Kaipara Flats Wings and Wheels (4) - DH Beaver ZK-CKH

The sound of another radial engine overhead heralded the arrival of the NZ Warbirds DHC 2 Beaver ZK-CKH arriving from Ardmore flown by Graeme Woods with 6 passengers including Flyernzl:

Over the threshold for Runway 07.

For a nice wheeler landing.

Later on in the day here she(?) taxying for takeoff.  The smoke clearing in the background is from David Wilkinson's takeoff in his Pitts.

We have covered this Beaver lots in the past (see HERE for its history), but I am still a fan of brightly coloured aircraft against the green backdrop of Kaipara Flats airfield.  And you can get close to the action!
