Nanchang display at the airport open morning

A number of flying and static displays had been arranged for the Wellington International Airport open morning. According to airport publicity, this included Brendan Deere's Supermarine Spitfire, the RNZAF Historic Flight's North American Harvard, RNZAF Bell UH-1H Iroquois, a Life Flight Trust rescue helicopter winching display and Wellington Aero Club's [WAC] Nanchang CJ6.

Unfortunately, due to weather, the only display was performed by WAC's Nanchang CJ6, ZK-MAO, and then just a handling display rather than an aerobatic routine. Still, the crowd seemed to appreciate it which is good. My photos don't do justice to it, but here are a couple of the better shots.
