Another good thing was finally meeting Craig of Marlborough Aviation Scene fame. We've left messages and exchanged emails from time to time, so it was good to finally meet.
Like last time, there was a visit to the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre based at Omaka aerodrome. I have to say that the second visit was just as good as the first one. There's always something new to be seen and learned - well worth the NZD$20 [around USD$10, more or less] entry. The museum is full of World War One era aircraft - many original as well as replica, including a wide range of aircraft built or refurbished by The Vintage Aviator [who are based in Wellington]. Check out their website - it is incredible what these genius' are doing!
While there we saw what looked to be an immaculate North American Harvard landing and parking. I was able to get up nice and close [along with other people who were there at an auction] to get some pictures.
The following pictures are that immaculate Harvard - my next post will include the some of the other aircraft I spotted around the place. BTW - I'm not sure of the registration, so if anyone can drop me a comment, that would be appreciated.
