So, little Miss 4.5 year old, here are some pictures of your Uncle Rod flying a real aeroplane! Pretty sure that Nana and Pops can tell you all about flying with me!
For the slightly older among you, the aircraft is Wellington Aero Club's Cessna 172N, ZK-FLT. The flight consisted of 4 circuits, including normal and flapless approaches, and a short approach. Fun times, and I'm now all ready for a planned flight one evening next week!
Thanks to Lawrence for the photos.
