Waitangi Weekend #4: I flew the Nanchang!!

Today was a fantastic day! Not only was the sun shining all day, the wind wasn't too strong [around 20 knots when I finally got up], but I got to go up for a flight in the Nanchang CJ6, ZK-CVI. AWESOME!

It's a bit weird being in the back seat [instead of right next to the instructor], and it's even weirder when almost every instrument is labelled in a foreign language and often using different measurements [metric instead of imperial]!

The flight consisted of a quick scenic over the CBD [the "Caketin" Westpac stadium looked busy with the rugby sevens], then a quick doddle around the Hutt Valley before returning to land.

Here's another picture of ZK-CVI from yesterday.
