Media Release
Friday 22 April , 2005


ANZAC Day is a special time for members of the New Zealand Defence Force, where they can reflect on the courage and sacrifice of all those who have died serving New Zealand in armed conflict, particularly those who went ashore at ANZAC Cove on 25 April 1915.

As part of these commemorations the RNZAF will be conducting fly-pasts of many dawn and civic ceremonies throughout the lower North Island and South Island. The fly-pasts will be conducted by aircraft from RNZAF Base Ohakea including Iroquois from No 3 Squadron, Air Trainers from Pilot Training Squadron and Kingairs from No 42 Squadron.

The Iroquois are carrying out night flying Exercise in Tekapo and will cover the central South Island while three Kingairs will fly over ceremonies on the West Coast. A formation of Airtrainers, a Kingair and a Harvard will attend ceremonies in the lower North Island.

Attached is a schedule of locations.
