The RNZAF came into being on 1st April 1937. As part of the celebrations (to be held at Ohakea & Wigram) there will be an art exhibition of paintings relating to the RNZAF. Brett and I have submitted two works each, all four of which will be for sale. Brett, as mentioned in earlier posts, has submitted the Vulcan and Thunderchief.
I am submitting the Catalina GF-C and a new work especially for the exhibition - the landing of the initial batch of 14 Skyhawks (consisting of 10 A-4K and 4 TA-4K aircraft) that were delivered to Auckland in 17th May 1970 (as deck cargo wrapped in protective plastic cocoons aboard the carrier USS Okinawa) and then towed by road to the RNZAF base at Whenuapai:
