Thanks very much Errol, I appreciate this fine feedback and the help. I was in a rush to get this thread up.
Yes, Peter was very enthusiastic about the forum, a pity that the flipping wind came in at that moment, haha. I'll try to catch him at Omaka and grab another interview there. ;D
Sadly, I had another great interview to go into this episode which was recorded with another enthusiastic forum member, Strikemaster owner Brett Nicholls. The wind noise on that recording however (done on the windy Friday) was just too much to even hear either of us in the end. I'm gutted about that. I hope he will be willing to do a redo at a later stage.
Absolutely wonderful episode, Dave! If it's not too difficult please do record further WONZS episodes at airshows.
Highlights for me have to be Bill Reid - especially talking about how he got Hudson 049, Dave Phillips, and Peter "mustang51" Anderson, despite the wind. His enthusiasm for the forum, and the Kiwi circuit, really comes through here.
Thanks again for another great episode. I'm listening right now for the second time!
Fantastic job Dave. Peter's comments about the forum were very positive and forthright. Interesting to get a different perspective about kiwi air shows compared to others overseas too.
His experience that he described of monitoring the Mossies progress on the day of the first flight mirrored mine, although I was surreptitiously keeping track while at work. My response though to the updates and photos accompanying the flight were very similar.

I was a bit slow thinking everyone was talking about Warren's original interview with Dave (last year) until I realised something didn't addup and clicked this link! Thanks for doing this Dave and like Zac said, more Airshow interviews. (As long as you can find the time and actually watch the displays!!)
The Auster should be recognised for what it is: a gentleman's aerial touring carriage and a nice aeroplane.

Thanks for the very positive feedback, I have also had some very nice emails from others who have listened too.
I will definitely try to cover more airshows, that has always been the intention when I started the WONZ Show actually and I had originally planned to do an episode at the Ardmore Mosquito launch but I was so busy with the video camera it never happened. I think the three day shows lend itself much better, there's more time to do the audio recordings and to watch/film the air displays.
If I can get to Omaka I will be doing one there, that was actually in the planning pipeline before I even knew I was going to Masterton.
