Over the weekend as my family celebrates the 5th birthday of my daughter,we went to the Wellington Aero Club Open Day which my kids enjoyed.

The open day started around 11AM up to 4PM  and hundred of people are pretty much  excited to see some of the vintage Aircraft that was used during World War 2.

The Royal New Zealand Air Force at one stage during WWII operated 56 Catalinas in the Pacific Theatre. During the late 1980s this Catalina featured in an award winning BBC documentary  titiled “The Las African Flying Boat”, which screened extensively worldwide.

Aside from Catalina, more than 10 Aircraft such as the famous Red Checkers are parked inside the Wellington Aero Club Hanger. The even was very successful till next year.
