Flight around Kapiti Island today!

Today's weather was perfect for flying, so I got to take mum and dad up for a flight out of Wellington and around Kapiti Island. We departed to the south-west [the Sinclair Departure], followed the coastline to Pukerua Bay, then across to Kapiti Island. The return flight was back to Pukerua Bay, then Haywoods [power station], then the Eastbourne Arrival.

All the pictures and video comes from mum's iPad [who has clearly been practicing, since the photos and video are so good! :-)]. The pictures are as labelled, and the videos are part of the takeoff and the final approach. Enjoy!
