RNZAF Open Day - Whenuapai - New Zealand from Military Photos by sickened
Recently the RNZAF had an Open Day and Airshow at Whenuapai, in Auckland, New Zealand.I have been to airshows all over the world and this was as enjoyable as any of them! The RNZAF accomplishes a lot of good given its minimal budget, and I am very proud of it! The aviation scene in NZ has some very rare and varied aircraft, in combinations not likely seen elsewhere in the world.There were very special overseas guests displaying at this years Open Day, the high light of which was surely the F/A-18A from the RAAF in Australia!...
