I suspect you might be the film production Co that created this Zac ? - I congratulate you if you were
No affiliation with the production company I'm afraid, all I did was transfer an old videotape to digital and thence to YouTube for all to enjoy. I was at the Blinkbonnie display though...I distinctly remember my watch getting filled with super thanks to all the demonstrations!
Hi Zacyates, about 1978/79 there was an airshow at Wanganui, the opening show was 10 fletchers and 4 choppers, I have 3 photos of it but are only instamatic generated, does any one have better ones or was there at the time. The sound was incredible.
Unfortunately Dave's photos have been Photobucketed, but does anyone know when the airshow was? The aero club's 50th jubilee bookazine makes no mention of an associated pageant.

This VHS Video was filmed and produced by Majik Video Systems of Auckland. They are well know for producing Railscene a video/rail magazine on current New Zealand rails news and features. Lindsay Benbrook was born and educated in Wanganui. Later he became a TVNZ cameraman and was the logical person the make this feature video on Wanganui Aero Work at their 50th year of aerial topdressing in New Zealand.
I wrote researched and wrote most of the script. However I did not like the sound of my own voice, so I left it Lyndsay. I got the copy with the numbers and the script was linked in with the numbers.
Wally and Mabel Harding captured the early aviation history of the company as well as other aviation demonstrations and airshows on 8mm cine film.
