Celebrations to mark 100 years since New Zealand's first successful flight will take place at the historic site in Takanini next month. Vivian Walsh and his brother Leo helped to lay the foundations for aviation in New Zealand with their first flight on February 5, 1911. It was made in a Howard Wright biplane and was recognised as the first powered, controlled and sus- tained flight in the country. The aircraft was named Manu- rewa and Vivian Walsh flew it more than 350 metres at a height of 20 metres in front of spectators at Glenora Park in Takanini. Vivian subsequently made more flights in the aircraft. He kept detailed records and gradually built up knowledge of the controls and performance of the aircraft. Leo did not attempt to fly the plane because he feared his reactions were too slow but he was a skilled designer and organiser. The February 5 event is being organised by the New Zealand branch of the London-based Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators. The commemorations are being organised by former Royal New Zea- land Air Force pilot Gordon Ragg. Commute by bike andbeintowin The summer Bike 2 Work challenge is on again.
