Short hop to Paeroa and back

Why take a plane and fly it to Paeroa township and back? Well because I can! Seriously though, I have a web acquaintance from the UK who is visiting NZ at the moment who told me he was visiting Paeroa over the weekend to watch the motorcycle street racing. I told him to look out for me, so Bill, if you are reading this then that blue and white Archer overhead on Sunday was me. Unfortunately in my haste to get to the airport I clean forgot to take my camera so no photos (sorry). Having said that I had to suffer the indignity of arriving overhead Paeroa between races so there was nothing to photograph in any case.

I must say, it did feel good to be back in the air after more than a month.
