Hello and welcome to my world of  PLANES AND PILOTS.    My name is GRACE BLOMFIELD and I  reside in Tokoroa South Waikato , NEW ZEALAND,  two  beautiful  islands set as jewels in the PACIFIC OCEAN,  and if you still don't know  where that is, get out a  WORLD MAP  and look for AUSTRALIA,  to the right and down a bit and that's  NEW  ZEALAND  ( AOTEA ROA)  This site is about   PLANES AND PILOTS,  those wonderful men and their flying machines....my  partner  JAMES LOBET,  the managing director of GANAGOBIE AIRCRAFT RESEARCH LTD,   was  born in ROCHEFORT, LATE OF NIMES, FRANCE ,  with his brother WILLIAM LOBET,  were the original designers and builders of the  wonderful wooden aircraft..  THE GANAGOBIE AIRCRAFT!   And here you can see the photos of the original GANAGOBIE built by the LOBET brothers in LILLE  FRANCE.   HENRI MIGNET'S  FLYING FLEA (link on this page)  On these pages I will show you some interesting planes and their very interesting pilots, ( our friends!)   so please enjoy this site and any comments are most welcome..thanks...!.....safe flying..!
Yours truly " Amazing Grace"  and a beautiful  old TIGER MOTH,   have a real soft spot for these lovely old planes. My first ever flight  was at the tender age of 18yrs,  in a  TIGER MOTH   at   NAPIER AIR PORT,   NEW ZEALAND.....The pilot  then was one   JIM REEVES   of the NAPIER AERO CLUB.   The pilot of the above  TIGER MOTH for the day was EVAN GRAY,  of    KATIKATI,  BAY OF PLENTY, NZ,   at the WAIHI AIRPORT BAY OF PLENTY, NEW ZEALAND ,  (lived in Waihi BOP for 35yrs) 
Me, running a stall to save a beautiful old BRISTOL FREIGHTER , at  an open day at WAIHI AIR PORT, BAY OF PLENTY, NORTH ISLAND, NEW ZEALAND a few years back, this beautiful  Bristol is now accommodation, damn shame as the engines were still okay, none of the sales re flying her again went through mores the pity
