Friday 24th April was a very sunny hot day with a bit of overcast about.

INTERNATIONAL RESCUE ( Taranaki Rescue Chopper) passed overhead mid afternoon

Just as he got to my place her turned heading Southeast across the Aerodrome at Pace.

Interesting no Radio call's and no Transponder on as didn't show up on various app's ...

Scully has been busy surveying the Ponderosa from her pole.

On decent off her pole. Note tail stabiliser at the rear.

Heli Choppers NZ AS-139 on decent into NP.

ANZAC DAY APRIL 25th will be a bit strange this year.

No commenerations or Fly Overs this year due Virus. 

Although they asking you to stand at the end of your Driveway at 6 AM as a show of Respect.

We lost a fellow Aviator today real shame.

He was in the process of doing his essential work.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
