On March the 12th Air Chathams carried out a charter from Whakatane out to White Island and return in their Douglas DC-3 ZK-AWP.
AWP had carried out its normal Saturday run down from Auckland and the White Island flight was a fill in before it did the return schedule to Auckland.
Thanks to David Evans and Roger Brown we have three photos of this event.
Above we have ZK-AWP departing Whakatane.
There is nothing like a good escort.
Below we see Harvard 98 (aka ZK-ENJ) and the Titan T51 Mustangs ZK-MJD and ZK-MPC.
Island ! Moutohora ?
And a bunch of happy punters.
