    • Geez I wish I were a New Zealander - just like living in Australia, but better.
      Plus I'd be able to wander over and see your plane - a real flying Bearhawk!

      Great photos Jon

      • Not exactly "backcountry" flying, however this is the biggest meeting of 'real-world' backcountry aircraft and fliers in New Zealand, so thought it worth sharing.

        This year's Bearhawk entry is shown here flying against the venerable Maule M6-235 long-wing.

      • Our latest offering, I had to learn a new video editor (took all day) and I am still a little rough around the edges....

        • Had to share this video - Battson and I headed South for 3 days flying in the Southern Alps.

          I knew it was a capable machine but I’ve got a newfound respect for just how capable. The weather was great and I got to see the Bearhawk in its natural playground.

            While the BH is certainly very capable - in the hands of a pilot with the flying skills of Jonathan it is really special. Mark

        • Truly spectacular country. I thoroughly enjoyed that. Thank you for sharing.

            I’m not sure, Battson may know. None of them seemed very long to me.

            The gravel ones were the shortest, grass ones around 250m.

        • Excellent video, beautiful country, exceptional airplane. Thanks for sharing.
