It was of course, Whale Island... enroute to White Island.

Actually even looks a bit like a whale from that angle.... big body on the left, with the tail on the right...

Thanks HCP

I'm a long way from home. Fuel my nostalgia by posting some more snaps of your wanderings.

YouTube finally relented and allowed me to actually view your vid...

Very nice... must have been awfully tempting to do a bit more than "rock the wings" heading out towards Rangitoto

Oh yeah...but we were pretty low level (below 1000ft) for most of the way...and over water isn't the best place to "play"...merged horizon, lack of depth perception, etc.

and while im feeling nostalgic, heres a few photos of Hoxton Park, a Fantastic airfield and the base of my first paid flying job..

the bowser was removed last week... so its an extra $25 to refuel from the truck..






Ahhh the Memories! close formation circuits....no radio calls, it will be missed.


My last ever landing at Hoxton Park. YHOX. Runway 34



Goodnight From YHOX. It was a Fantastic Airfield, and full of fantastic memories, from downright scary, to beautiful 15kt crosswind landings coming over the trees! watching suburbia creep ever closer of the last 17yrs, and even the relationships with the instructors flying the Beechcraft Skippers built up over the radio and in the circuit. ahhh good times..

YHOX, Signing off.

drinks time.

Not strictly aviation related... but I did fly into and out of the location and I wanted to show off the panorama that I (aka: Adobe Photoshop) stitched together... Not too bad for a crappy 2megapixel cellphone!

The afternoon sea-breezes seemed to catch a few unsuspecting pilots who choose to make seaward approachs... with 15+kt tailwinds

ps. hint: the airfield is about 1/4 mile to the right of the pic... next to the golf course



EDIT: J3... have you got a super hi-res version (1600x1200 or better) of that last pic?? My desktop wants to give it a good home
