One place I can highly recommend to anyone interested in early aviation is Maderville near Gore on the South Island.
There is a thriving restoration business there, specializing in Moths and the like.
You can even go for a fly at great rates.
I would advise you to look it up when your there, you won’t regret it!
To the optimist, the glass is half full.
To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
