Harvard Flight

So someone else decided they wanted a flight in a Harvard (I had a flight at the start of the year – different Harvard though).

 

And today was the day. Lee had booked a scenic flight in number 92 Harvard painted up in ‘42 US Navy colours. It has to be the best looking Harvard in NZ (hence the large number of photos that I already have of it!). Rob and I were only to happy to pop out to take some photos. Also a good excuse to try out my new lens and tripod :)

 

It was a pretty hot day here in Auckland, so there was a lot of haze. Made for a great day for a flight though!

 

Here’s a few snaps:

Off course, Ardmore is a busy airport, so here’s some snaps of some of the other aircraft about…. the place seemed quite busy with helicopters today compared to other times I’ve been out there.
