The trip home

The trip home from the competitions was decidedly less eventful than the trip to the comps. The weather was clear with no cloud, little wind in Wellington [about 8 knots down the runway, instead of gusting over 20 knots with a cross wind] and great visibility.

Heading home, we passed over Paraparaumu aerodrome then headed into the Hutt Valley for an Eastbourne Arrival procedure.

Here are a few photos from the trip.

First up are a couple of photos as Matt took off from Otaki airstrip.

Looking south over the Hutt Valley. Wellington is in the distance, mainly obscured by the strut 
Last up is a picture from, Wellington Aero Club. As we taxied in, these three gents [whose faces are slightly obscured] set to work with pushing the planes in and generally tidying up. Thanks guys!

The Three Musketeers and genius aircraft movers. One of whom has an exam to finish :-P
