Something a little different

It's been a wet and windy day at Wellington, so not much flying. In fact, it's been one of the quietest weekends at Wellington that I've seen. I did get a couple of photos though.

The first is a Piper PA28-140, ZK-CUA. This aircraft is registered to Canterbury Aero Club. I strongly suspect that it is a leased machine as it's not in the usual CAC red, black and white scheme.

The second is a Kawasaki BK-117. ZK-HAW is registered to Helilink in Auckland and appeared to be filling in for the usual bright red and yellow Westpac Rescue helicopter.

The final picture is a photo of... a Microsoft flight simulator screen at the Aero Club. We've just put in a very simple setup with control column, rudder pedals and throttle quadrant and even an intercom. The projector helps with the enjoyment factor a lot. The "aircraft" is an Air Nelson [Air New Zealand] Dash 8.
