A clear morning and light frost greeted us as we untied WAX.
Relaxed now, I marveled at how rapidly the scenery changed. Snow cloaked mountains and ridges, rapidly disappeared behind with every northbound mile.
There I was, above familiar territory and enjoying the view. My Flyinn guide had relaxed now we were on our way.
Lined up on the airstrip, I worked through the check list one more time. Certainty settled in me.
Strip Flying is a highlight for every tour. Landing on unprepared fields, or farmers top-dressing strips is an exciting and interesting challenge for pilots of all capabilities.
Some days are more special than others …. It was time for Warbirds over Wanaka Airshow.
