The Hawera Aero Club held a quickly arranged BBQ lunch flyin on Sunday.  60 aircraft including  seven autogyros attended from as far North as Auckland, as far East as Hastings and as far South as Paraparaumu.  Jordan Elvy and Simon Hills were there and Jordan has provided the following photos of what I thought were some of the most interesting attendees.

The VPM M 16 Tandem Trainer autogyro ZK-VPM flew all the way from Paeroa.  I guess some of the autogyros flew in together as there were also gyros there from Te Aroha, Tauranga, and Matamata, as well as one each from New Plymouth, Palmerston North and Upper Hutt.

Our only Scottish Aviation Bulldog (Series 121) ZK-WUF is now owned at Whanaganui (with an h according to CAA).

And the Erco Ercoupe 415D ZK-AQX flew in from Stratford where it has been hangared for several years.  It might soon be heading down to Hokitika with its owner.
