Remarks: Port side view of RNZAF B200 Super King Air NZ1883 on Wanaka's Rwy 29 on Friday 02Apr2010. Photo taken in dull overcast conditions, upon the aircraft's arrival at Warbirds Over Wanaka (WOW) 2010. (RAAF 32 Squadron Super King Air A32-372 was also at the Airshow. Also, RAAF 38 Squadron, which formerly operated DHC-4A Caribous, has now transitioned to Super King Airs as an interim type, pending acquisition of a Caribou replacement aircraft.)
Remarks: Stbd front view of Lavochkin La-9 ZK-LIX taxying back beside Rwy 11, after a practice flying display at Warbirds Over Wanaka 2010. The pilot was weaving the aircraft on the sloping ground, as it is impossible to see straight ahead past the large radial engine. Conditions were dusty on Friday 02Apr10, making the hills at rear hard to see in this view. The La-9, which is the only airworthy example in the world, was flown in company with Yakovlev Yak-3 ZK-YYY. Also, the La-9 flew it's last New Zealand display at WOW 2010, before being shipped to USA.
Remarks: Close cropped front view of Air New Zealand Link (Mount Cook Airlines) ATR-72 ZK-MCJ on long finals to Wanaka's Rwy 29 on Friday 02Apr2010. (Note the turbine exhausts on the skyline at rear.) Photo taken during the aircraft's arrival at Warbirds Over Wanaka (WOW) 2010, on a Charter Flight. The ATR-72 is over the gully to the East of the airfield. My first (and only) flight in a Mount Cook Airlines ATR-72 was in Sister-ship ZK-MCQ. The 0.9 hour flight from Christchurch to Queestown on 05Apr1996, helped me to attend my first Warbirds Over Wanaka Airshow in 1996.
