Sat the 5th March
Saw Don & Cherie getting ready to Blast off for PP once the new GPS had been fitted.
TGC was already busy hauling Gliders about the place.
Arriving early afternoon was Jodel D-18 ZK-JVG based outa Te Kowhai. Interesting thing about this puppy it's powered by a 100hp Rotax 912.Ex Rangiora.
Note the RV canopy looks great and ya can crack it open for Fresh AIR
Great colour scheme
Team JVG about to disembark
It's handle is CRAZY HORSE
RVG heading somewhere's
Team Boyd outa here in DBZ
Another Mustang convert there's that grin again
Checking her out
Again what a neat scheme.
It used to be Yellow and purple now a more tasteful black contrast
The Flight deck nicely laid out
Really nice engine instalation and Cowl
Radiator with oil cooler at the rear of cowl
Gary & ONE arrived
Really is a nice job looks great and the Chequer's look sweet
Team JVG about to embark for a meandering flight back to Te Kowhai
Yup D-18 has flaps, D-11 don't
Getting ready to go RWY-34
Vid of Take Off
Peter & his Glider heading to the flight line 09
JVG approach & overshoot
Gary contemplating his next move
Gary & One heading out for Feilding I think he said
Steve was out to get familiar with SSF
Cessna 172S Zk-COS was in from NP from Skywest Aviation for a bit.
I think he is suitably impressed although he is an instructor so smiling not aloud.
Gliders slowly returning one by one
COS racing the Ute slowly gaining
The Twin Star lads were back in here doing Tubine wash.
Mean while Harry & Gary been doing some flying
Twin Astir making her way in
Lads taking Rotors off so no one can flog the Chopper or for inspection probably the Latter
TGC in the middle of a wipe down
Last of them in except Tim who landed a short time later
