Last Post

With all of the social media formats now available I don't have the time or desire to carry on updating them all.
So this blog and the Twitter page will no longer be updated and contributions to and aviation forums and etc will be minimal.
Just my website (first priority) and Face Book (secondary) will be updated from here on in.

NZ Warbirds Calendar 2016

Here are the front and back covers of the New Zealand Warbirds 2016 calendar.
These were printed a few weeks ago and will be shipped to Whitcoulls and Stevens stores around New Zealand in time for Fathers Day.
It is also a fundraiser from NZ Warbirds and the Aviation Heritage Centre, both great organisations to support.
They will be priced at $34.95 and will be available at all Whitcoulls and Stevens stores.
Not as many WW2 fighters in the 2016 version, I decided to mix it up a bit more than usual, I was sent a couple of samples and it has come up quite well I think.

Precious Metal II

BOOK UPDATE: The last lot of photos and text for the 2015 book "Precious Metal II" will be delivered to the publisher on Thursday.
Has been four years in the making, more than 20 airshows, four trips to the other side of the world, three trips to Australia and countless flights within New Zealand.
Have conducted more than 60 flights in USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, several second goes due to weather/technical issues so a lot of patience has been needed and even I knew what we needed by the deadline I had to be patient in order to get it.
Has had its challenges right the way through, mostly good and not always easy.
Next step is photo selection and the whole book needs to be put together.
I won't give away much just yet but I am hoping this will be the book that will exceed my own expectations and ultimately allow me to slow down a bit.
Have worked with some great pilots, owners and engineers etc along the way, the book is all about you guys and what you do so thank you all!
