This month in place of our Thursday meeting we have a tour to the Great War Exhibition, Quinn's Post Trench Experience on Saturday 30 June.

Two years ago we had a very successful evening outing to the Great War Exhibition and since then the Exhibition has been improved and updated with a superb colour photo gallery detailing the formation of the ANZAC force and its eventual deployment to Gallipoli rather than its original destination of Britain and France. The very latest addition, the Quinn's Post Trench Experience, opened on Saturday 14 April 2018.

Quinn's Post is a unique experience worldwide allowing us to live moment to moment, as the ANZAC troops did in the trenches at Gallipoli. This is a "not to be missed" tour.

Last month Andrew Hewitt, Head of Engineering Contracts and Leasing at Air New Zealand, told the story of how Air New Zealand have created a CAMO to more effectively control 50 jets and $300m of spend to manage the Air NZ jet fleet.

Read more about Andrew's presentation in the attached "Wings and Things" journal.
