P40-E Kittyhawk - Cockpit Camera
Wings Over Wairarapa Airshow 2009
Hood Aerodrome * Masterton * New Zealand

On Friday the 16th 2009, a Curtiss P40 Kittyhawk and North American P51 Mustang took off from Hood aerodrome in Masterton (New Zealand), to fly over Wellington city in order to promote the Wings Over Wairarapa airshow.

This footage is that shot from the cockpit of the Old Stick And Rudder Company's P40-E (http://www.oldstickandrudder.com), and as flown by Stuart Goldspink on that flight. Not the most exciting of aviation videos, but pretty cool if you've always wondered what it's like to fly a P40.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2009, Wings Over Wairarapa is firmly established as a must see biennial event on the Australasian aviation event calendar. Wings Over Wairarapa shares its home at Hood Aerodrome with some of the finest privately owned collections of First & Second World War aircraft in the world, providing a backdrop for a show that is hard to rival.

Other P40 footage is available on our Classic WW2 Fighters DVD.
