Raglan's Black Sands Fly In

There were no black sands this year - it was high tide...
...but the skies were pretty black.
However, on my first trip to the Black Sands Fly In I was more than impressed and got quite a raft of new pictures... All photos taken at Raglan on 12 November 2011 by S Lowe

Jabiru SK80, ZK-CEN
Another Jabiru, Jabiru J200 ZK-CHW
And yet another, Jabiru UL-T ZK-CJP
Busily flying was Avid Aircraft Magnum ZK-CLC
The only twin present was Colomban Cri Cri MC-15 ZK-CRI
An old faithful, Jodel D11 ZK-DYB
Aptly registered Europa XS ZK-EPA

Cli-mate 100 ZK-EZY... I had never even heard of this type before!
Flight Design CTLS times two... ZK-FDB and ZK-FDC

Piper Pa22 Tripacer ZK-FJD had been evading me for some time...
Cvjetkovic CA-65 ZK-FNY... just how do you say the manufacturers name?

My first Jodel D18 photo, ZK-JAC
