    Aircraft Fly-in

    A few shots from a fly-in down my way today. Prize (a pat on the back) awarded to whoever can name all aircraft types. (Colin you're excluded from entering ).

    You'll come crawling back when no-one else can get them right!

    PS: I didn't realise that that Dragonfly was still flying! (oops)!

    PPS: And Bert Pither did well to fly the original (I sure wouldn't like to!) (Oops, again - darn it!)

    PPPS: Was that Tiger Moth II, ASV? (I remember her like it was yesterday!)

    Unlikely now you've spoiled the fun, and I think you under-estimate the members abilities.

    Fortunately I made my mental guesses before reading your post, Colin.

    I got the Tiger Moth right
    I read the tail on the indoor shot (cheat!!!)
    I knew the last was DH (De Havilland), but guessed Rapide, not Dragonfly

    Nice shots, Steve.

    Sadly, in the UK it is very difficult to get 'airside of the barriers' to get shots like these due to Security issues and Health and Safety liabilities.

    Cheers,

    Ok, Well done you got the Tiger Moth ZK-ASV (NZ786) and the de Havilland DH90 Dragonfly ZK-AYR (one of only 2 flying examples left in the world) and yes the replica of Bert Pithers' monoplane which he allegedly first flew in 1910 off Oreti Beach, Southland.
    However, I have to deduct points because you didn't mention the de Havilland DH89B Dominie (Rapide) "Tui" and the trickier instrument panel from a Fox Moth.
    Bravo though old chap and a highly commended to Mr Humphries

    Well I would have commented, but I wasn't allowed

    Seriously, I wouldn't have got the instrument panel shot, but I've come across the others before - most in the book "Flying by Bradshaw" (Arthur and his wife Thelma were members of the Nelson Aero Club).
