WAC Open Day 2009 #4: Warbirds

We were privileged to have two warbird aircraft fly in especially for this day. The first to arrive was the Nanchang CJ6, ZK-JQS. The second was the mighty Goodyear Corsair FG-1D [ZK-COR].

As you'll see if a couple of the pictures, after refueling and starting, the pilot folded the wings and taxied out past the pumps before extending them again. The sound of this beast is amazing and I'm privileged to have seen this amazing aircraft again!

The Nanchang is usually based at Omaka aerodrome,. and the Corsair at Masterton aerodrome. I hope to see both of these aircraft when I head [weather permitting] to the Classic Fighters airshow at Omaka this coming weekend.
