A quick trip to Masterton: post 1 of 3

I had no plans to go flying today, but Pete invited me to go along for a ride in the back on the Nanchang CJ6A, ZK-MAO [think about it...!] when he went to Masterton [NZMS]. A number of other Club aircraft were there, practicing for the Flying NZ Cook area regional comps coming up in a few weeks.

As expected, it was an awesome ride up there and back [thanks Pete!], especially since we arranged to meet up with a Club Piper PA38-112 Tomahawk, ZK-ESG, on the way back. We had a bit of fun chasing each other around, and finished off with a celebratory barrel roll :-)

Top to bottom, the photos are:
