This amateur video shows some of the other aircraft in the show, as well as more Mosquito!! (Can't get enough!!)

Word is she hasn't flown since the show due to some minor tech issues getting sorted and one of the pilots getting stranded somewhere!

I bet I'm not the only one who has the theme music from 633 Squadron in their heads. :)) Thanks, Baz.

I have to say I believe New Zealand must have
the highest level of aircraft enthusiasm and
active participation per capita of any other
country in the world :ymapplause:

I look forward to seeing this Mossie once she's
all shaken-down and with a choreographed
display that will show what she can really do!!!!!!!

My hat is off to those what made it happen :ymapplause:

Thank You, Baz!!!!!!!

Danf.
I like to do my planning retroactively!

Here's a high definition video taken by Warren Denholm (Owner of Avspecs who rebuilt the mosquito)n as Dave Phillips formates on the twoseat Spitfire so Gavin Conroy ( a well known photographer of aircraft down here) can snap some photos of her formating with a T11 Vampire with Auckland as a backdrop.
The horn noise you hear going off now and again is the undercarriage warning horn as Dave moves the throttles around to keep in formation. I love the crackle and pop from the exhausts when they land!

Well this is a sad video for us kiwis. This shows the very last flight from Ardmore of KA114. She will now be in the dismantling phase before leaving NZ on a ship on the 15th of February.
Great air to air shots though!
