Flying today!

Today dawned windy and gloomy, but forecast to improve throughout the day, which it did :-) I got to take up the club's Cessna 172 ZK-FLT for a quick flight out of the control zone, off towards Paremata and Mana Island for some rate 1 turns, back to the Hutt Valley and some slow flight, then back for a couple of circuits.

Awesome fun... although no time for photos. The images from today are:

MUS was at AR the other day, did a low level pass with the Vampire, looked awesome!

Hi Ben,

That would have looked good!
