Road Trip #2: Waikato Aero Club

While on the road trip, I scheduled some time to go visit another blogger, Euan of the Making a Kiwi Fly blog [Gidday Euan!]. Unfortunately there was no flight due to the weather, but I did manage to get some photos.

There were a few things that had changed since I last flew in to Hamilton [several years ago]. The parallel grass runway was dug up - apparently they are putting in another sealed runway. Secondly, the new tower had been built - quite an impressive structure!

Anyway, to the pictures. Top to bottom are:

Piper PA28-181 Archer, ZK-UFS
Alpha R2160, ZK-WKF
Cessna 172M, ZK-DRQ
Cessna 180K, ZK-JFG
Control Tower
Waikato Aero Club building plus Control Tower

Good to see JFG again, but sad to see it still live soutside. They really shouldn't leave the props like that if they intend on long-life prop seals.

Man they ruined that Airfield looks like STALUG 13 with all that fencing.

Hi Nick,

I don't recall anything unusual in the fencing - no more than last time I was there several years ago...?
