Classics of the Sky

On Saturday, Tauranga city held their afternoon airshow.

Pretty relaxed show... goes with the location really. Especially in Summer.

And only an afternoons / evenings entertainment before heading back to the waterfront for dinner and beers (for rehydration purposes!) :-)

Overall a good show with what they had to work with. Weather conditions had stopped some aircraft attending and the wind put a bit of a damper on some displays. That was also with the Mustang not being able to attend due to engine troubles..... the P-40 was a nice substitute though.

Here's the shots. Enjoy :-)

























But then emergency strikes! No panic though.... just a small fire and luckily some firefighting capable aircraft are on hand! Nice little demo and cool to see something quite different.
