Skyhawk Reassembly Image Gallery 1

Check out the following images taken by Classic Flyers Volunteer Geoff Tansley of the arrival and re-assembly of Skyhawk NZ601 in the main hangar of Classic Flyers over a period of several days starting Monday 21st May.

If you want to see the RNZAF team in action filmed on a stop motion camera go to this web site at Sunlive. It is really impressive.

DAY ONE (Arrival)

Arrival 5
Arriving out side ClassicFlyers. It have been a challenge passing this load on the highway!
Arrival 1a
Most aircraft arriving at th Classic Flyers ramp usually do so under their own power!
Arrival 3
The cockpit and front half of the fuselage secured to the low loader on its shipping cradle
Arrival 2
The Delta shaped wing plan form stands out displaying the aircraft's lineage back to the 1969's when this type of wing design was first used in US Combat Aircraft.
Arrival 4
The tail and rear half of the fuselage still very much intact. It would have made an intimdating load to try and pass on the highway!
