Flying, visitors, engines

I had another competition practice today with about 30 minutes of simulated instrument flying. Not so flash - I definitely would not have won any prizes today!

Still it was safe, just not up to competition standards. Oh well, more practice to come! Today's aircraft was the Club's Piper PA38-112, ZK-EQX.

There was also a visiting aircraft here - a Vans RV7, ZK-JPH, which is registered to a Mount Maunganui address. It looks beautifully made and maintained. Very flash indeed.

Lastly, here's a picture of an Air New Zealand-operated Airbus A320-232, ZK-OJS, being towed out. It ended up down the southern end of the airfield for an engine run, having spent a day in the Execujet hanger for some maintenance. Not the greatest photo - it was taken on my phone/
