Monday I think Flight Training Manawatu Cessna 152 ZK-OLV was in for gas they had been operating all over Taranaki for most of the afternoon.
It was a pretty hot day so advised them how best to get airbourne and quite by surprise they listened and had no prob's getting airbourne. They had tried to get over mountain but said the ole girl would get to 6000ft and no higher....!!!! Something not right there. I have had one of these upto 15000ft out from Raglan mind you took 21/2 hours and a fair amount of flap use and a bit of help from mountain wave. Just one of those days when thought do something different way back when.
