Above we have the Jodel D.9 ZK-AKR c/n AACA/360 safe on the ground at Rangiora beating the arrival of the Nor'westerly wind today (24-10-2011). Named "Clydevale Phantom" it was built by Charlie Kenny at Balclutha and first registered on 12-02-1987. Current owner is Peter Locke of Hokitika. I believe there was a Jodel fly-in at Taieri this weekend.
Pober Pixie ZK-PXI c/n MFS1 about to get airborne, with Mike Sheffield, for a beating from the Nor'westerly. A quick circuit and it was back home again. It was still a Nor'easter on the ground.
