Flight Hauraki's Scenic World

On Monday I tried out Flight Hauraki's service to Whangarei... Manks thanks to Chris for arranging it, William the pilot and Paul the owner of Flight Hauraki. What a great way to see the beauty of Northland and spend a day in either Whangarei or Kerikeri or, do what I did just go up and back for the ride.
