Another great shot from Marty's nephew Jono. I was hoping to get a ride in the Convair but this covid thing has wrecked all those plans; and if it hasn't happened already, this pic will soon belong in the NZ Aviation History thread :(

Great shot, keep em coming from Jono, Marty. So is there any likelyhood they'll continue flying the Convair or is it permanently retired?

We should to a NZFF get together and charter it for a flight somewhere

Thanks for the kind words gents, Jono passes on his regards as well.
Between him and Chris, I can supply enough photos to last year's.

deeknow, I'm not sure about the fate of CIE, but the last flight was CIB from Auckland to Wanaka (back in May I think), where she will reside at a museum. She had a good life, retiring at 69 :bow:

CP ...not sure about " legendary" ... that could be good and bad ..Oh, I could tell some stories :wink2: .....but thank you Sir.

I have A4-page lists of all my Internet Forums, YouTubes screen names and real names chums, from all around the world!
I always use their Real Names in all my correspondence!
It always seems much more Friendly...
...and they reply the same, in my case!
...it's nice!.... :D ...!

One thing I always like doing is reading the details on Forum members' "profiles", and YouTube creators'; "About" section!
Always lots of very interesting information which they freely offer about themselves; their whereabouts, interests, etc, to be had!.... :thumbup: ...!
It opens up the whole world to us, and makes us all much closer together!
Lots of fascinating stuff to be discovered on Internet Forums, etc!
Paul..... :D ...!
