This is a "do not miss" opportunity when in Wanaka.. A chance to climb into the open cockpit of a legendary airplane and see some of the best scenery in New Zealand. Everything was great from take off to landing.

The weather was perfect and the landscape really inspiring. After a good cup of coffee, I had a marvellous flight above Wanaka lake (New-Zealand) and surroundings. Here are some photos I took during the flight. Olivier (Bordeaux, France)
