Mosquito, Spitfire & Kittyhawk flypast

At lunchtime Wellington was treated to a flypast from three participants in this weekend's Wings Over Wairarapa airshow. Led by the famous Wooden Wonder, the Mosquito fighter-bomber - the only one left flying - and escorted by a Spitfire and P40 Kittyhawk, the aircraft approached over the harbour and executed a lap of the waterfront area, before heading back north over Thorndon, which is where I recorded their flypast. The main action is at 0:45 in the clip. You can also catch a glimpse of the formation approaching Wellington in a video shot from the Kittyhawk's cockpit here.
