I'm off to bed for my early start, camera and phone both charging. I may even take the little camera too!
I can't wait! I'll be in a grey WONZ shirt, jeans (may regret that), and a black Aerowork cap with a Cresco on it and dragging/being dragged by my 12yo nephew - please feel free to say hi! Hopefully will see some of you around!
And remember: trust in the weather and pray for the B-52

Nice to see a picture of Harvard 66 at Masterton. It belongs to Andrew Gormlie CEO of Classic Flyers. Can't be 100% certain with his back to the camera but I think that is him standing, with arms folded, behind the port wing. I gather it had been at Napier last weekend.
Great to see the B-52 made it to the show. I was watching for it in Wellington, a bit of variation from the flight plan it didn't show overhead, instead flying up the Wairarapa side of the Rimutaka Ranges. Managed only to get a very far off pic of it over the ranges at altitude.

I didn't attend today. I spent today with family, revisiting and tidying my father's grave at Clareville. It was a nice gesture for the C130-H to dip its wing in a low-level salute as it passed overhead. At least that's how I chose to interpret it...
We all went to the Gladstone pub for lunch and were treated to a lowish high-speed flyover by the B-52. Nice gesture too. Thanks guys, impressive!
