Dreamy vid Rusty! I wonder if Davenz13 lives/works within view of that approach pattern?

There's an airport approx. 6N mi. from my house. It's longest runway is 5000 ft. so it can handle some fairly large aircraft.

Sometimes in the Summer, (if you're lucky) you can catch vintage WWII era B17's/B-25's pitting there, enroute to a Quansett air-show. More than once I've heard that unmistakable roar of round engines in the sky over my house.. Always a thrill!

No such luck Roddie although I have been there once or twice but always by road. Very pretty area popular with tourists. I live in the lower North Island and Queenstown is lower South Island. Not far from Queenstown is Wanaka where the famous Warbirds over Wanaka airshow is held every two years, very much on my bucket list to attend. Here's a link to their website

I was born and raised near Ohakea Air Force base and as a kid used to see Harvards (Texans), Vampires, Canberras through to Skyhawks etc flying on an almost daily basis. Even got to witness a Vampire crash into a field a mile or so away from our house. Now there is no fighter wing anymore, just helicopters Crying or Very sad

Nice.. at least you don't have to wait too long into 2016.. I'm gonna' share a link in off-topic, to some beautiful B17 pics that a friend copied me on recently. Keep your eye out for it!

A sad reminder that although beautiful this area can be unforgiving. A single engine Cessna with a family of four was found yesterday west of Wanaka. The plane had crashed into a ridge, the exact cause of the crash unknown at this stage. There were no survivors
