What an awesome day! Today was the RNZAF Ohakea Open Day. Nick and I flew up from Wellington for the day, and it was well worth the trip! Apart from the B757 [in the USA getting fitted with cargo doors] and the Seasprite [would have been nice to see], every military aircraft available to the RNZAF was there, as well as a very good selection of ex-military and civil types. Oh year, there was an Australian F-111 as well.
