Auckland trip #4: Warbirds

Later on Saturday afternoon, I got to witness the return of a small number of the Warbird aircraft that had gone up to Whenuapai Airbase for the Royal New Zealand Airforce Open Day/Airshow.

Top to bottom are a couple of pictures of the Messerschmitt 108 Taifun [actually a Noord 1002 - a licence-built version of the 108], ZK-WFI. Following this are two pictures of the returning North American Harvards, then three pictures of the mighty Cessna A37 Dragonfly, ZK-JTL. I won't pretend to know too much about the histories of these aircraft, but a quick visit to the NZ Warbirds Association website should sort you out with the details of these aircraft and many more New Zealand-resident warbirds.
