Sunday 3rd July was cool 6C when I arrived down there but sunnyish with slight overcast.
The light wasn't great as these pic's of ONE & Gary riding the rail don onto 27.
Quite a heavy dew if those rooster tails are anything to go by.

Also doing a warm up as well.

It was so cold today up there you could hear them as they passed overhead all day. Usually never hear them.
Some interesting things pass by down the Aerodrome every now and then.
Wayne & SNW sliding down for 27
Then Gary & TVG appeared overhead and zoomed down to Ferndene Field as the Modellors had on a Warbirds day going on. That's the New Plymouth Club we have the Egmont Club operating off the Aerodrome here.
Then back for landing 27
Giving the ole Pylons a close look.
Some to be back in the Hangar for some R & R. This probably the Highest T-51 in the country as she is no Hangar queen fgets flown all the time.
Gary & ONE Heading for home.
Around 2000ft climb I think it does give or take.
Glen & Paul from Keri Keri stopped by for as look around the place and a pic with the Mustang was in order as they usually are.
Mountain slowly calling it a day.
Now just so you no we have a perfectly good access road to drive around. The Grass out from Hanagar 1 is coned off to stop people from driving (CARS) on the Grass as it's quite soft.
So a lil respect eh.
Another twat drove over the Grass tonight. It's just being lazy so cut it out.
Or as our Man from the council said expect a bill to repair it.
I know who you are. So unless ya want a bill cease and desist.
I am saying this only once.
Have a nice day.
