Bruce and I went for a Tootle round last Sunday headed for Turangi (both unable to make the National Rannz Fly in at Motueka BUGGER although Wayne and Carl in SNW Russell and Jillian in TIG with Craig and Gary in SSF had a hoot) as on the 3rd Sunday of each month they have a BBQ. Great bunch people brilliant lil Airfield and a really beautiful spot GO HAVE A LOOK. Thanks for the hospitality.
We also trucked to Taumaranui none home although checked out a Savage Cuib parked on the field very nice it was to. Oh and Bruce found 2 x Golf Balls.
We then headed for Te Kuiti but didn't stop as no sign of activity although they have flash sealed runway now. Shows how long since I been there and remember the Grassy bog it used to be. On the way out we passed this HUGE Lime quarry looks quite impressive from the air.
We then zoomed out to the coast flying in formationm mostly past NP airport just as the YAK team were heading out down the water front and then had a look at WOMAD then headed for Stratford (SD). Toatols flying time 3.15 hours.
A magical flying day........
