While Richard Currie was enjoying the stunning afternoon at Taupo yesterday, 5/5/17, I was also enjoying myself flying in the stunning conditions at Taumaunui - smooth air, not a cloud in the sky and a light Southerly blowing right down Runway 19:
The Central Plateau mountains with a fresh dump of snow. I really enjoy flying on the centreline.
The Wanganui River just South of Taumarunui.
A stunning view out to starboard.
Standard overhead rejoin at 2,150 feet. It sure is hilly around Taumarunui!
Tucked up in the hangar. What a great day!
