The Gisborne Photo News



Sky High

Members of the Gisborne Aero Club were hosts recently to members of the Rotorua Aero Club who "dropped in" for an over-night stop on a weekend jaunt which took them on a circuit through Whakatane, Opotiki, Gisborne, Napier, Palmerston North and back home in two days. Over thirty Rotorua people came in ten planes, one of which held particular interest. This was the Mooney Mark 21, a clean-lined, high performance plane which attains a maximum speed of 180 m.p.h. The four seater can certainly move and the pic above shows the plane out over the bay with Nick's Head in the background.

Some of the Gisborne people at the airport to greet the Rotorua blokes are, from left, Jock Smith, a Rotorua visitor, Peter McColl and Miss Kim McColl, Miles Usher (Rotorua), Gael Searle, Charlie Down, Dawson McIntosh, Taua Rakuraku, Graham Mullooly, Ross Glover, Peter Nichols, Brian Hutchinson, Peter Anderson, Granville Jones, Geoff McColl and Patrick Aldwell.
