I usually go to the local museum when I'm home each Christmas.

 

What was interesting was the 5 RAF Wessex helicopters they have acquired, not a type I knew had made it to NZ. from what I read online these machines were used for logging operations here for a while but are no longer airworthy (AFAIK). I'm not sure what the plans are.

 

there are more images in the photo stream if you click on any of the images below

The other thing of interest was the Skyhawk tank which is discussed here

Worth a visit if you're in the Bay. I think they have an airshow late Jan (anniversary weekend?)

Another one on the list next time we visit. My old friend Jack Browne used to help out there before he became unwell. Thanks for the photos.

There has been some issue with the Wessex's so they have now been removed. Glad I saw them when I had the chance
