We attended the Masterton ANZAC day commemoration of air battles, with a display of one of the finest colllection of vintage war planes in existence.

Today we saw the " Fee " fly the FE.2b pusher bi plane replica which was built in secret from scratch. Its called a pusher because the prop is behind the pilot.

It is an awesome aircraft with the slimmest of struts connecting the fuselage with the rudder. The gun turret is upfront in what must have been one of the exposed places to be in air combat. It was a fantastic show. Lots to see. There is also a good story here about the plane in the Wairarapa Times Age
