What a STUNNING day Thursday the 28th was.

Super Clear and oh so SILKY SMOOTH and Crystal Clear

Mt Ruapheau was also sticking out in all it's Glory as well.

So it was Scramble , Scramble, Scramble.... Sue and I got airborne quick smart

Yours truly having a hoot.

Giving the Team at Elizabeth R rest home a wake up call.

Then on the Climb to 9000 foot over the Summit

Fantams Peak on the way up you maybe able to see the hut and out house

The Central Plateau behind

The run in to thread the needle between the Summit and the Shark Tooth only done in no wind conditions like today Awesome.

 SSF was still climbing at 700 foot at 9000 feet not bad

Good also to see CAA Rep Don Waters out and about. Me I was going flying but Wayne had a good chat. Good to be able to chat with the regulator at Grass root level.
