Can't think who it was that coined the phrase "we have lift off" but that almost seems appropriate.. finally the "next Pitts" is actually in a container (isn't that a fantastic looking grey one???) and starting its long journey to Motueka. It won't be lonely on its trip as there is another aircraft of class, snuggled in there with it. an Aviat Husky, with tundra tyres no less!
For the less technically inclined, the nose and 3 bladed prop is the Pitts, the wing visible to its right belongs to the Husky. Not sure exactly what's in the big box, but I hope it doesn't move!
So here's to a safe and speedy trip.. we'll keep you posted as we get updates.
