Mosquito Finale in NZ

Wings Over Wairarapa Wows Audiences - national |

The air show described here was the final display for the Mosquito in New Zealand. On Tuesday dismantling commences for shipping to its owner in Florida, but we have had ten glorious weeks of sight and sound.

On Friday lunchtime, it did a flypast over Wellington, including two very fast low passes down the runway [and from my observation point I was looking down in it]. The passenger next to the pilot was no less a person than the last surviving Dambuster pilot, Les Munro, aged 94, who observed "it all feels so familiar"! What a wonderful gesture to a truly nice guy!
