Flying in a four seater

Uncle Malcolm has his private pilot licence (PPL)  and as a special treat he arranged to take Karl, Mama and I for a flight in a Cessna 172 which only has four seats.

Our flight yesterday took 48 minutes, from Whenuapai, out over  Eden Park, Alexandra Park Raceway, Ellerslie Racecourse, Mt Wellington quarry, our house ! and Glenbrae School, Musick Point (where Mama and Papa got engaged), Waiheke Island, Motutapu, Rangitoto, North Head and Devenport, buzzed round the Sky Tower and over the Auckland Museum, and back to Whenuapai past the Chelsea sugar factory.

It was so awesome up flying in the sky in a small plane.  We were quite low to the ground and could see heaps.
