And now a special announcement from the Air Force Museum of New Zealand:
As part of the Wings Over New Zealand Christchurch Forum meet on 1 September, the Air Force Museum would like to offer attendees a special abbreviated version of our Open Cockpit programme.
We are running the event that day for pre-booked members of the public, but to work around the forum programme, we will make the five chosen aircraft (Spitfire, Kittyhawk, Mustang, Macchi and Sioux) available in 5-6 minute slots between 0900-1000. Forum members may book a slot within that time to sit in the cockpits of as many of those aircraft as they like, for $10 each. All proceeds will go towards helping care for our collection.
So this is a great opportunity that the Museum staff are offering us. Anyone wishing to take advantage of this offer please email me and let me know which aircraft (singular or plural) that you'd like to sit in, and I'll make up a booking list for the museum staff. Please book this ASAP so we know how many of you wish to do this.
Also the event is creeping closer on the calendar, please book your Forum Meet tickets NOW by emailing me. My email is email@example.com

I'm pleased to add one more speaker today, Nathan Bosher of the Air Force Museum of New Zealand will give a short presentation on how the museum deals with paint schemes, accuracy, selection, etc. Nathan, better known to all as Barf, is the Safety and Surface Technician at the museum and is renowned as the expert on RNZAF paint schemes.

LAST CALL FOR TICKETS
If you wish to come to this event but have not paid for your ticket yet, this is your last call. All tickets must be purchased by Sunday evening, the 25th of August. I will be too busy to deal with last minuters after that sorry as I am away. So if you've not secured a ticket by Sunday you will miss out.

The excitement is getting real now. I shall be heading soon to the airport and will fly to Christchurch today. I am very much looking forward to catching up with a lot of aviation friends at the forum meet. I will also be spending tomorrow and Monday in the Museum's archives doing some more research. It is going to be lot of fun. Home again on Monday night.
