In this Wings Over Australia episode, Dave Homewood and James Kightly speak with Matt Henderson, who keeps his pristine NZAI CT/4 Airtrainer and Cessna Bird Dog at Kyneton Airport, in rural Victoria, Australia. They discuss the history of the Airtrainer, or Plastic Parrot as the RAAF colloquially knew them, on both sides of the Tasman Sea. And Matt talks about his own RAAF career, his learning to fly and owning and flying old aeroplanes, including flying his CT/4 in the trainer display team, and being the president of the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia.
