Bad weather has delayed the start of the Flying New Zealand
Thirty-four planes and 60 pilots and passengers were due to
fly from Masterton to Wanaka, via Hokitika, today.
However, Safari director Daryl Hone said low cloud had kept
some planes grounded in Masterton and others grounded at
their home airfields.
With the weather improving, he expected the safari to reach
Wanaka tomorrow and it would continue on to Taieri on
Thursday as scheduled.
