OK, so were are getting to the end of the "random" aircraft pictures. Here are a few more, then onto the weather, the PM, a very unusual formation and dinner.
Piper PA28-140, ZK-EBM, registered to Canterbury Aero Club
de Havilland DH82A, ZK-ASM, registered to a Bayswater address, including instrument panel. This aircraft was used for the "preflight defect" competition. I think from memory the engineer introduced 28 defects [!] and the winner got something like 24 of those. Amazing!
Hawker Beechcraft G58, N298WA
de Havilland DH84, ZK-AXI, registered to an Albany address. This photo was taken as it taxied in from a flight with some very excited Young Eagles [and a couple of very very happy instructors] on board. Lucky Gorillas [I'm not explaining that comment - you had to be there!]! :-)
