There was a good selection of aerobatic aircraft present: Extra 300 ZK-XRA, Giles G 202 ZK-NUT, Pitts S 2 ZK-WIZ, Slingsby Firefly ZK-TXZ, Furio ZK-LLC, and also Zlin Z50LS ZK-ZSO and Piits S 1 ZK-EES. Unfortunately these last 2 did not compete as they were unserviceable.
ZK-XRA landing. The runway at North Shore airfield has a slope down to the middle, and these hot aircraft were very spectacular landing down the slope.
And a view from the balcony of the Aero Club building with a pretty impressive lineup of aircraft - Falco ZK-TBD, Furio ZK-LLC, Extra 300 ZK-XRA and Pitts Model 12 ZK-PTS!
The Pitts Model 12 did not take part in the competition but it did fly - spectacularly! I will do another post on this aircraft.
Finally, I met "eflyernz " who had come up from Hamilton for the day. He had a much flasher camera than I have, so I will leave him to post some more spectacular shots from the day (no pressure!).
