In this episode I chat with father and son, Peter and Jason McQuarters. Peter Mac has been involved with aviation preservation since he was a teenager, when he founded the group the became the now very popular Ashburton Aviation Museum.
He and son Jase tell us about how the museum developed, and how Pete's own classic aircraft collection has developed over the years. We also hear about their airshow commentary duties, and Jase talks about his flying training and his progress towards flying heavy metal warbirds.
I even shed a tear as he described the arrival of the Tiger into Ashburton... so passionate and motivated and visonary - thanks David! Amazing surprising feats he has achieved for dreaming, capturing, transporting, and nurturing NZ aviation history... Well done to the Macs! Keep up the flying and maintaining those selective type ratings Jason!
