[4 April 2010] [4,842 views] [No Comment]

Out the window the weather looks somewhat bleak.  The remains of last night rain lingers in the clouds above.  Looking to the south the sky is a glowing shade of blue.

Sunday is here, the last day of Warbirds over Wanaka.  I’m sitting in the media centre with my Photographer, Matt Richardson waiting for the displays to start.

I’m looking at some of the coverage from the main stream media outlets and I’m enjoying what I’m watching.
