What a Birthday Present !
In February of 2006 I took the Falco to the New Zealand Sport Aircraft Association fly-in for the weekend.
On the last day was the airshow. It was a great day but by the time it was over I had had too much sun and was well and truley over it. I had booked myself a room at the local posh hotel as a kind of present to myself but as I sat in the closing traffic jam and watched as a lot of my friends flew out for home I wished I wasn’t going to the SAA dinner and was myself going home.
Well just as well I stayed. That night I received the Air New Zealand trophy for the Grand Champion homebuilt aircraft. I was delighted.
