Bad weather has delayed the start of the Flying New Zealand
Thirty-four planes containing 60 pilots and passengers were
due to fly from Masterton to Wanaka, via Hokitika, yesterday.
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 hopefully improving, he expected the safari
to reach Wanaka today and it would continue on to Taieri
tomorrow, as scheduled.
