It pays to read your emails careully...

A friend sent me an email about going from NZTG to NZAS for the SportAvex but I read it quickly on my phone and read it as if the SportAvex was in NZTG... Result, drove through NZAS without visiting the airfield where there were a 100+ aircraft... So yesterday, 5 February, I called in on the Ashburton airfield on the way back to Christchurch... Sadly I missed quite a few but I was delighted with what I took...
