I had a listen to this Royal Aeronautical Society podcast where they have pulled an old lecture given by HRH Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh in 1954 about aviation around the Empire and Commonwealth. He goes into some great detail on aviation in New Zealand, particularly topdressing. He talks also about Australia, Canada and some other British Commonwealth countries, the types of flying there and their needs from the industry. Seriously fascinating stuff.
This was very good stuff and thankfully fortold of the meteoric rise of Ag aviation in NZ over the 40 years following, without which many of us would not have had an interesting or rewarding life. I wonder if the old bugger still remembers delivering it!
What some people don't know is that they don't know enough to know that they don't know anything
