MANGERE STUDENT SPENDS A DAY WITH THE AIR FORCE
Eleven year old Yuna Paparoa of Mangere spent a day at RNZAF Base Ohakea on Thursday 17 July as her prize for coming second in the NZ Defence Force Operation Anzac Spirit Art Competition.
Yuna started off the day by visiting the Helicopter Transition Unit where she learnt about the new A109 and NH90 helicopters followed by a 30 minute flight in the A109 simulator.
The highlight of the day was an afternoon flight in a RNZAF Iroquois around the Manawatu region.
