Unfortunate Omaka News - Full Noise

Postby FlyingKiwi » Sat May 13, 2023 7:32 am

Sadly the Yak-3 Full Noise was involved in an incident at Omaka yesterday which has left it looking a bit worse for wear. Most importantly however there were no injuries. Hope she can return to the skies in the not too distant future.

Could have been a lot worse, but was so glad to hear Graeme walked away ok. Luckily Omaka is the Yak rebuild capital of NZ, so it's the right place to be repaired!

Yes, I mentioned on Facebook that if there's a small consolation it's that it's in the right place to get repaired at least!
