Here are a few photos I've taken over the last couple of weeks at Ardmore, mostly during my lunchbreaks or after school finishes. (I'm attending Ardmore Flying School) Enjoy!
P-40 Kittyhawk, ZK-CAG "Currawong".
Eurocopter EC130 B4 ZK-HSW, owned by Advanced Flight who own most of the Eurocopters based at Ardmore. (Eurocopter have their NZ base here)
P-51D ZK-TAF with the engine cowlings off; check out that engine!
The infamous MiG-21. (not in flying condition as I'm sure you can see)
Now that is an engine!
$8,000 will buy you this...
...and then probably another eight grand just to get the engine started.
Cockpit of one of Auckland Aero Club's Cirrus SR20s. ZK-SRT. Note the sidestick controllers, and the parachute mechanism on the ceiling for use in case of engine failure.
Partenavia P68C ZK-SMB. Owned by Systems Advisory Services. Sorry about the quality but this was taken from inside a hangar.
Any comments are welcome.
