I can remember watching an aircraft ground loop at an air show at Asburton, probably late 50s. I think it was from the Deep Freeze team, possibly a Beaver or Otter. Fairly spectacular cloud of dust kicked up.
Baz, you're mixing ZK-RMH and ZK-PXL up. See the post by Brett above. I would have thought that Ray would have had more than 90 hours on P-40s
The details given in those reports aren't always totally accurate/consistent as it is usually just whatever the pilot submitted on the form which can leave a bit of room for interpretation, for 'hours on type' he might have put his hours in that particular aircraft or on P-40E variants specifically for example.
Perhaps little known , NZ3009 had an incident just a few days prior to the WoW 98 airshow. This required new prop , from the Pays I believe in Australia. Some damage to one of the flaps. All repaired before the actual show. I am happy to be corrected though. My first WoW was '92 and thrilled of course to see Mark display ZK-PXL at the time. That weekend was I think J Lamont's FF in ZK-PXL.
