Yealands Classic Fighters, Omaka 2019 Adventure

Kia ora! Greetings from New Zealand! Ray, Rod, Di, Bruce, Lorraine, Steve, Fran and I attended the Omaka 2019 Classic Fighters Airshow in Marlborough, New Zealand during the Easter holidays.

This year the Yealands Classic Fighters were Saluting Women in Aviation. I’ve featured lots of photos and articles about Omaka 2019 in this issue of Propwash, especially the exclusive interviews with Rachel Brown, Marketing Manager for Omaka Heritage Aviation Museum and with Jet Fighter Pilot "Huck" - so read on.

We also had Brian Oswell putting on an exhibition of D-Day Operation Overlord and Airforces Actions from WW1 And WW2 during the ANZAC week. Take a peek at the featured article.

Read John Hayler's encounter with Eric Dabbas of Handiflight and don't miss our 22nd June fly in to Palmers Island, Yamba.
