Sunday 22nd of Jan has been pretty epic with 60 knots on the WX Stn and coming up to 200mm rain 

Hence my Flag and pole taking a beating at my place. Had to put the black one up as the NZ Flag had lost 2 of it's stars....


Now I have to use a file Photo as Gary H was cleaning his plane and keeping it under wraps.....yes I know......:0) RVH gotta hell of a shock. Pffft.



A lil Wind & Rain never slows Aviators from SD down there's stuff to be done.

John & Gary out doing stuff.

A tad more than a gentle breeze.


Susie got hold of the Camera.
