    Very cool! I can only dream of going to an airshow here that would half the variety of aircraft!

    Glad you like them. I'm getting down to static shots. MA, I sort of got the idea that you go back to New Zealand every few years. If that's the case, you might want to time your next visit to coincide with this:
    Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow - New Zealand
    It's a good sized show. Another site of interest:
    Welcome to the NZ Warbirds Association.
    And Mike said there's a Spitfire site for one there that you might be interested in. I'll get the URL from him.

    On to pictures. Mike likes pictures of squirrels (yeah, I know). I couldn't find any at the airshow, so I took pictures of a chipmunk instead.

    The Chipmunk is a 50s era British trainer, now often used as an acrobatic plane at airshows. Everyone's pseudoLatin is good enough to translate the motto, right?

    I don't get there very often, my wife goes every few years to see her father. However, we do have 2011 or 2012 down for a possible cycling/photo trip around the south island west coast area and Wanaka is within that plan also so it just might work out at that

    This is an L-39 Albatross (no, it's not around someone's neck ). This is a jet trainer from Eastern Europe. It's relatively inexpensive to own and operate (by jet warbird standards). It has become very popular in the United States and there is now a class to race these at the Reno National Air Races.

    This is a BT-13 Vultee Valiant. This was a WWII basic trainer. A very pleasant airplane to fly with very good flying qualities. Unfortunately, many of these were scrapped for the engines and instruments to upgrade some of the biplane trainers as crop dusters.

    Last of the "colorful birds", as JAS says. These are pieces and parts of a couple of N3Ns. The N3N was a biplane primary trainer designed by the Naval Aircraft Factory (United States Navy). Very similar to the Stearman biplane. The primary difference is the wing structure on the Stearman is wood and the wing structure on the N3N is aluminum.

    JC got back to us about the scrap metal in front of the hangar (earlier in this thread). He said it was the nose landing gear from a B-47 Stratojet.

    Last picture - yep, it's an air show.
