We discovered there was to be a WWI airshow at Masterton on Saturday afternoon.
As we haven’t yet converted our UK PPLs to NZ so that we can fly solo we hired a plane and instructor and flew down with Max to Masterton.
The weather on the way wasn’t perfect – there was a chance we might have to turn back near some hills but it turned out to be ok and we got there. Noel flew there and I flew back.
Waipukurau in the far distance.
The airshow was fabulous and the aircraft were flown with spirit.
By the time I flew back the weather had improved and it was a beautiful early evening flight, with shadows on the hills.
Back at Hastings airfield.
