A nice enough day to go flying

Today was a nice enough day to go flying. Not perfect, but not rubbish either.

Considering the northerly breeze at Wellington, I had expected some turbulence when heading out the Palliser Bay in the southern Wairarapa area, but there was very little.

The only weather-related stuff I did encounter was a line of cloud at about 1100' up against the eastern side of the Rimutaka Ranges. Photos follow of ahead, beside and behind me. Apart from this, the cloud was nothing to be concerned about.

Heading back to Wellington, I completed a couple of circuits just to keep the skills up. I think I managed ok :-) although after experiencing the manual flap last weekend, I have come to realise just how slow the manual flap is in ZK-FLT... :-(

Last up is a nice picture of Air NZ's Airbus A320-232, ZK-OAB, landing at Wellington.

Now I just hope the weather is good enough for me to go flying tomorrow also. May as well make use of the fine weather we're having in Wellington these days!

Hi Liz, thank you very much! I really enjoy flying on these days which, although they can look a wee bit dodgy, are really nice days. Cheers, Rodney
