All
Great to have such a good turn-out for the June Branch meeting to hear Rob Mackley's story of the amazing restoration of his 1930's Lockheed Model 10A Electra. Details of our Branch Meeting in July are above and it will be held on the THIRD FRIDAY to suit our speaker. Tracey is a former RNZAF C130 Captain and was recently appointed First Officer on Trans-Tasman Freight Operations.

Come along and hear Tracey's story. This will be back to normal with time for a catch-up over a cuppa afterwards.

We look forward to seeing you at Classic Flyers in a couple of weeks
Regards & thanks
