Remarks: Rear view of ex 42 Squadron RNZAF DC-3C / C-47D Dakota ZK-DAK (NZ3546) at Warbirds Over Wanaka (WOW) on Friday 02Apr2010. This aircraft did flying displays and numerous Joyflights over the three days of the Airshow. I was fortunate to go on one of those Joyflights on Saturday 03Apr2010. The mountain scenery around Wanaka is more spectacular when viewed from the air.
Remarks: Port side view of ex 42 Squadron RNZAF DC-3C /C-47D Dakota ZK-DAK (NZ3546) on take-off roll on the grass next to Rwy 29 at Warbirds Over Wanaka (WOW) on 04Apr10. A bit of dust is being generated despite overnight rain, and the mountain background high-lights the Dak's white livery. During the day ZK-DAK did a drop of NZ Army 'paratroops' in company with 'Southern DC3' Douglas DC-3 ZK-AMY (Cn 13506). [The tail wheel of ZK-DAK appears to be resting on a campervan!]
Remarks: Close cropped Port side view of ex 42 Squadron RNZAF DC-3C Dakota ZK-DAK (NZ3546), about to land after a JoyFlight at Warbirds Over Wanaka (WOW) on 03Apr10. This was the flight after mine, which lasted 0.3 hours in bumpy conditions. Note the 'tiny' Hercules visible in the distance (under the Dak's Stbd wheel.) That was the RNZAF's First C-130H NZ7001, which did flying displays over the three days of the Airshow.
Remarks: Wing View taken from C-47D Dakota ZK-DAK (NZ3546), while taking off for a JoyFlight at Warbirds Over Wanaka (WOW) on 03Apr10. The shadow of the Dakota is visible next to Rwy 29 below. (The aircraft took off from the grass to the north of Wanaka Airport's Rwy 29.) The Wanaka Transport and Toy Museum is visible at top left, surrounded by parked cars and camper vans. The Wanaka Scenic Flight lasted 0.3 hours in bumpy conditions.
