We were a little rushed, so no time for the niceties of setting up the wing mounted camera or to stop at Westport, but it was still a fun ride! The aircraft was Wellington Aero Club's Cessna 172N, ZK-EKE.
I was busy with the flying, so Andrew has kindly sent in some pictures from the flight. As you can see, there's a lot of interesting countryside to see between Omaka and Westport!
