The Wings Over New Zealand Aviation Forum held another successful and entertaining Forum Meet on the 4th of March 2018. The venue was the excellent Classic Flyers NZ Museum, at Tauranga Airport. In this episode, Part Three of the Forum Meet recordings, we hear from Wing Commander Brett Marshall of the Air Force Museum of New Zealand talking about the museum’s history, its current projects and its plans for the future. Sadly during this recording there were a number of technical issues with the microphone where the sound cut out and recording was not possible. However Brett carried on and the issues was eventually rectified by a technician. But this recording is slightly abridged from the original speech.

Then lastly we heard from Arthur Gatland, who was a Kiwi in the Royal Air Force back in the 1970’s and 80’s, flying fast jets like the Hawker Hunter, BAe Hawk and the Hawker Harrier. He’s also a well known glider pilot,  an airline pilot, and an author.
