Last Thursday, Room Rata spent the day at the Classic Flyers Aviation Museum in Mount Maunganui. It was an awesome experience and allowed the children to see real life and replica planes that we have learnt about whilst studying Jean Batten. We had rides on a vintage fire engine, walked through a World War 2 Catalina and sat in the pilot seat of a Victa Airtourer T-3A! If you’re ever in Mount Maunganui with some spare time, check it out!
