31 March was a slightly overcast day warm with no wind.
Today the No.1 Sonerai Fighter wing with Mothership the Polaris were heading to Rangiora for the RAANZ National 2017 Fly-in.
Checking ATIS's in PN , CHCH, WN and calling PP F/Service it was all go with a 1400 departure with a stop over at PP to top the Tanks and have a comfort stop.
From there a stop at Kaikoura for leg stretch and another top of for Gas (Can never have to much and never pass a pump by) then the final push onto Rangiora.
The plan if it went pear shaped was to shoot into Omaka or return to PP.
SNJ & SNG mentally preparing themselves for the job ahead.
