On the way down to Kaikoura we popped into Cape Campbell airstrip where I did a few touch-n-goes before continuing to Kaikoura.
This video shows the departure from Wellington, but is mostly of what we got up to at Cape Campbell. This started with an overfly at about 1000', followed by another pass at 500'. Both of these were to assess the condition of the strip and to try and detect any wind that might have been around [there wasn't much - maybe a very slight southerly]. Following this were a series of touch-n-goes.
One interesting sight is all of the land which has risen out of the sea after the recent series of earthquakes. Take a look - it is quite obvious in the video.
