Attempt to get to Palmerston North yesterday

Yesterday another club pilot and I attempted to fly up to Palmerston North to collect another aircraft. It was always going to be marginal, but as it turned out, too marginal to be worth while pushing on. 

Here are a few photos from the weather around Wellington. It's a wee bit unusual with all the cloud hugging the coast [there was a 20+ knot westerly at around 2000'], but worse further north as we could not even get as far at Paraparaumu safely.

Oh well, better to wait for a better day. Aircraft for this flight was a Piper PA38-112, ZK-TAW.
