Topic: Neville Mines, known as ‘Shorty’ in his RNZAF days and on the Wings Over New Zealand Forum, is a fascinating mine of information (pardon the pun). His long and extraordinary background in aviation includes Air Training Corps, volunteering at the Museum of Transport and Technology in its earliest days, a long career in the Royal New Zealand Air Force, saving warbirds across New Zealand and from the jungles of Papua New Guinea, working for Mount Cook Airlines and much more.

He has also been a longtime prolific photographer of all things aviation, and his photo “stash” have become legendary on the Wings Over New Zealand Forum.

Neville’s Favourite Forum Threads Include:

•  Shorty’s “Photos From My Stash”

•  Rumours (in New Zealand Aviation)
