  1. Steve - you must have been in the terminal at that the same time as me. I watched NEW take off then boarded NEP for Wellington. Next time you are coming to TGR let me know and I will show you round the Museum if time permits.

  2. Hi Peter... I was down by the Aero Club... I was in TRG for a few days and it was great to have a bit of time to do some plane spotting. What days are you at the museum?

  3. I am there in the Archives Library in hangar 3 on Mondays and Fridays from 9am approx till 3pm approx. This week I happened to go down to Wellington (Tuesday) and back today (Thursday). I also work as a museum guide on Sunday afternoons. There is plenty to see with the Sabre due for refurbishment followed by a long term restoration of Avenger NZ2539 which after 6 weeks is already back on its wheels and with a lot of corrosion already removed.
