Overflying Paraparaumu airfield

This short video shows me flying overhead Paraparaumu airfield [ICAO code NZPP] in February. This was part of a fun flight from Wellington, around Kapiti Island, overhead NZPP and back to Wellington.

Enjoy the video!

My log book tells me my first flight from Paraparumu was January 22, 1958 in DC 3 ZK–AOH with the late Capt Russ Carleton.

Thanks Rodney for the many memories recall.

Hi Brian,

I bet it looked a big different back then - I'm guessing all three sealed runways woiuld have been available?

The housing would have been a bit futher back also!
