Up to Foxpine today

I got to go on a flight today, this time up to Foxpine [ICAO: NZFP] with Andrew [another club pilot]. Andrew flew up to Foxpine and did a couple of circuits. I then flew a couple of circuits and back to Wellington. What's more, it was a great day to do it with ideal weather hardly traffic around until we go back to Wellington. Awesome!

Our aircraft was the club's Cessna 172N, ZK-FLT. Anyway, here are a few photos from the trip. The last two images are from Andrew's GPS track of the flight.
