Up, up and away!
Not a bad spot...
Richard and Andrew's mini quad.
Olivier and beer!
We just about had enough space!
Richards EZ coming in to land.
I can't think why we got a few double takes from passing motorists....
This thing is the business. Flys as good as it looks.
Olivier's nicely designed AP plane.
The red thing next to Richards head is the wine box wedged in a tree. Doesn't sound too sophisticated until you hear that Olivier knows the vinyard owner. Tasted great.
Yet another of Andrews toys!
Andrews VC-10. Anyone want to guess the wing span?
Little brother is watching.... Andrew's mini heli.

Too blustery for this little thing.

Nice cloud shadows.
Lovely colours at this time of year...
Nice building in the background.
HMS Mercury... not a ship as the name might suggest! It's been disused since 1993. I'm amazed at what good condition it's in.
Air to air with Dave's kite.
I think Pink swung onto the stage using the crane.
The ride 'Oblivion' can be seen on the right.

The runway below was actually coffee beans drying on a strip of black plastic. I did land on it though.
Looks like the kid could forsee the impending doom....
Crazy beach antics!
John launching his glider
Looking towards to estuary (where the microlight flys from) in Quepos
One of our friends owns a hostel in Quepos (The wide mouth frog). I did some shots for their website. We stayed there for one night as 'secret shoppers' to report back on our impression of the place and staff. It was by far the best place we have stayed.
Up with the birds at sunset
There were quite a few hotels cleverly hidden in the trees
This girl noticed the camera on the plane, so I pointed it at her and said 'say cheese!' I bet this gets more views than the rest of the shots put together!
We wrote something on the beach but it can't be made out
About to launch at Manuel Antonio beach
I'm standing to the left of the middle boat.
I'm really pleased with this one. It was quite a climb to the top.
The moon pyrimid.
Teotihuacan pyrimids. This one is the sun pyrimid. It is not known who built them.
We climbed up inside the statue. You can look out from his shoulder and sleeve!

San Blas town.
Rotting fishing boats in the harbour at San Blas.
That's me down there. The large area is solid rock. It's flat enough for most planes to ROG, I reckon. The next SCRAPS meeting, when I win the lottery!
I wouldn't fancy the job as window cleaner on this house!
A great view to have all to your self....
The sound of the piano could usually be heard emanating from the house.
Kitchen building on the left. Meal times usually included a few locals. Most of them spoke Spanish, so I could communicate through Katrina.
Such as shame it was so windy. I could have got some stunning shots.....
The mighty Grand Canyon. This, I'm affraid, is as good as it got.....
Old borax mine in Death Valley. Being as hot as it was, I was a bit worried about thermals lifting my Hawkeye into orbit! Luckily it didn't happen.
Hawkeye at Franz Joseph Glacier. Another one for you Joel.
The maze at Puzzling World at Wanaker.
Nick's house on the left.

Franz Joseph Glacier. The people walking look like a trail of ants.
Nick (Skycruiser) and I.
Stonehenge Aotearoa. I've AP'd the original, in Britain, I couldn't pass by without shooting this one too. The owners aim to use the shots on their website. The Henge is set to work with the sun and stars in the southern hemisphere, an
The tower at Auckland.
Auckland Harbour bridge. It was really too windy to fly, but I couldn't pass it without having a go. Would have prefered to have gone higher.
A typical campsite we stayed at. Our van is in the bottom left corner.
Whakarewarewa Living Therma Village.
This and the following photos are from the North Island. Pohutu Geyser. We didn't pay to go in, but I flew from the carpark. The whole of Rotorua stinks of sulphur!
Not something you see every day.... It was worth the drive and long walk along the beach.
The dead Blue Whale. It had rotten somewhat by the time we saw it and had lost its tail fin. I manage to step in a pool of the bloody oil you can see next to it. Yuk!
Lake Rotoroa. This a typical South Island scene. Beautiful.....
My Hawkeye flying its mission over Mount Cook. Joel, as ever, help your self to any photos I post for your website etc.

The road leading to Mount Cook.
The morning cloud had not burned off yet.
Mount Cook in the middle.

This was taken from the same spot as the hotel shots at one end of the island, so you can see how small it is.

Inle Lake. We were actually a few miles from the lake proper.
