Roll out of Grumman Avenger after restoration.

Seen here rolling out of the Classic Flyers hangar last weekend in November , was this recent restored to static condition of this former WW 2 RNZAF Grumman Avenger by great volunteers at Classic flyers at Tauranga Airport. My hat goes off to them with this great project which has been covered in a previous blog some  roughly 2 years ago.I did volunteer to assist in the paintwork but came side tracked to the middle East.

A big thank you to my partner in crime Peter Mole for the pictures
