Taumarunui Fly In

UPCOMING EVENTS:

THE TIGER MOTH CLUB NZ INC. TAUMARUNUI FLY IN October 14TH – 16TH 2016   

We are already planning our fly in for our usual weekend, before Labour Weekend and we want you to know that the Hostel has been booked, the Golf Club dining room has been booked and the caterers have been organised. The weather has also been booked and will be as good as always. On the 22nd May, 1946 the first DHC-1 Chipmunk took to the air, a product of de Havilland Aircraft of Canada Ltd. On landing, the test pilot Pat Fillingham told the design team, you have a winner. Production of the Chipmunk was then taken up in the UK and in Portugal, the final total being 1,321 aircraft. The many accolades awarded to this wonderful aeroplane, are too many to mention. Suffice to say, that it is now often referred to, as the poor man’s Spitfire. To commemorate the birth of the de Havilland Chipmunk, the Tiger Moth Club NZ Inc. invite all Chipmunk owners to join us at Taumarunui for our Spring fly in, on the 14th, 15th, 16thOctober 2016. While we have a large contingent of Chipmunks in our Club, we want to include those owners, with Chipmunks, who are not members to come along to this special weekend. Please pass on this invitation to anyone you know.

Missing Handheld Radio

If anyone got home from the Tiger Moth gathering at Taumarunui and found they had an extra Icom handheld radio, it probably belongs to Jerry & Jan Chisum. We use this in Tiger BMY (we are virtually unable to operate fromour home base without a radio) so would dearly love to have it back.

We didn’t have our name on it and it looks much the same as other handhelds, we hope that someone is looking for a clue!

Here it is- 06 879 9493 or 021 257 9892

Happy Christmas everone.
