Ashburton’s cyclist Donald Sutton is

hoping he doesn’t have to change gears in

his race thisSaturday.Hewill have to get

off his 1936 wooden­rimmed wheels and

movethe chain himself to adifferentcog.

It is one of the joys of riding aroad bike

that is almost85years old.

Donald and fellow cyclists Brent

Kircher and Ross Templeton will all be

riding old bikes in the final of the Mid

Canterbury Social Wheelers’ winter

series.

Brent will be on a1950 Arnst Special

and Ross will ride a1975 Italian­made

Gios.

Donald said getting the old bikes out for

ablastwas afun waytoend the series. All

three will start together with the main

packleaving them plenty of space.

The winter series ride is a16km out and

back course on Fords Road, andDonald

and his mates would usually cut it out in

25 minutes. They expect to be onlyfive

minutes longer on their old road cycles.

The 1950 Arnst Special was ridden by

Bruce Arnst in an illustrious cycling

careerthat spanned 50 years; he lastrode

the bike in 2000.

two bowlers with two non­bowlers;

Petriewas one of the non­bowlers.

Andhewas hooked.

It’sgiven him 46 years of social

Authentic Neapolitan pizza at Giovanni’s

MICK.JENSEN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

New Allentonpizzeria

Giovanni's is offering ataste of

authentic Neapolitan­style

pizza.

Gourmetpizzas aremade in a

wood­firedoven andcome with

arangeofingredients, a

number of which are sourced

from Italy.

Thepizza menu include a

margherita, quattro formaggi

(four cheese),funghi

(mushroom), pepperoni, hot

diavolaand other options.

Giovanni’s Pizzeria is the

brainchild of businesscouple

John andAnna McDonald,who

opened neighbouring Harrison

Street fish restaurant Docks

Bar &Seafood Grill in June.

Mr McDonald said Giovanni’s

had beendue to open ayear

ago, but drawn out issues witha

potential staff member’s

working visa, andthen the

covid situation, haddelayed

things.

The search for an

experiencedpizzachef had

been ongoing and he was

delighted to have finally landed

one.

Brazilian­born Thiago Pires

had 10 years experience

working withpizzasand had a

puristapproach andpassionfor

his craft, said Mr McDonald.

Giovanni’s had enjoyed a

‘‘soft’’ opening over thepast two

weekstotestsystems andthe

response had beenextremely

positive.

‘‘We’ve had feedback from

people who have eatenpizzas

in Italy andinItalian run

restaurants elsewhere, and the

overwhelmingresponse has

beenabig thumbs up.’’

Mr McDonald said mostofthe

ingredients for the pizzas were

Italian made and of the highest

quality.

Neapolitanpizza had avery

thin crust at the base, with

dough that puffedup around

the sides.

The specialised pizzaoven is

firedupto450 degrees Celsius

and uses kilndriedbeech.

Pizzas made from scratch can

be ready to eat in five minutes

and up to five at atimecan go in

the oven.

Pizzas can be eaten in or

taken away.

Mr McDonald said Giovanni’s

would offer adeliveryservice

in the future,but not in the

current economic climate.

It would also look to expand

its menu to include pasta and

gnocchi and would look to add a

liquor licence.

Those wantingtoenjoy abeer

or wine with their pizza could

elect to eat it next door at

Docks, whichheowned, and

which had alicence.

Pizzascome in aclassic 30cm

size and are suitable for oneor

two people.

Giovanni’s Pizzeria is open

Tuesday,Wednesday and

Sundayfrom 5pm until 9pm,

andThursday, Friday and

Saturday from 5pm until 10pm.

Fatima

ReviewedbyRowenaHart

Recently it was the hundredth anniversary

of the time that three shepherd children of

Fatima,Portugal,saw the Virgin Mary in 1917.

At the time this caused chaos in the family.

Their mother didn’t believe them, and when

others in their little village heard their story

they were prettynegativeaswell.

But when others heard about itthey flocked

to the placeonthe hillside where thechildren

sawMary.

And today it is estimated thatsome 4-5 million

people visit the Fatima shrine eachyear.

The countryside ofFatima was beautiful, and

the filmingbrilliant.

TheProvincial Growth Fund(PGF) gave

$94,000 for thebusiness case work and is a

Shop around for power prices, says lines boss

EA Networks chief executive

Roger Sutton

EA Networkschief executive

Roger Sutton says thatsome

residents in Mid Canterbury

arepaying higherpower

prices than theyshould be.

He said data from the

Ministry of Business

Innovation and Employment

(MBIE) showedretailer

margins appeared high

comparedtoother regions.

‘‘Data from MBIE suggests

that on average power

retailersinMid Canterbury

areoffering energyprices that

are13to24per centhigher

than our neighbouring regions

and the New Zealand average.

‘‘We arefrustrated that our

low residential line charges

are not always clearly passed

on to customers in our network

region.’’

He said thebestthing

customers could do is to shop

aroundand look for the best

deal. ‘‘Go to Powerswitch or

another comparison website

and see what'sout there ­it's

easy to getabetter deal.’’

Comparisonsites take the

information customers

provide about how they use

electricity,plus information

from their bill (if they provide

it) and estimate howmuch

energy householdswill use in

ayear. Usingthisestimate,

customers can compare the

different pricingplans

available andidentify the

cheapest.

EA Networks will be starting

Well-being,Preparation and Prevention

In my last musings Ispoke of personal wellbeing,

preparation and prevention -all things

that need regular visiting to maintain an overall

wellness.

One thing that young people don’t realise fully,

is that regular investment in maintenance can

save time, money and mental stress inthe long

run. Whether that begetting your car serviced,

painting the houseormanaging your finances.

At the time of writingthisarticle themajority of ourYear9students have

had aclass-by-class presentation on oral health. The balance ofYear 9

classes willhavethe same presentation beforetermend.

Acoupleofpointswere really highlightedduring these sessions where

things are falling short. The first observation made by the oral health

presenters wasthataconsiderable number of students arenot looking

aftertheir teeth properly on adaily basis–hopefully,having taken part

in the presentation, that will improve.

The second was around the fact that aserious number were not aware

that dental care was generally free up until the age of eighteen. What

was evident was that many had not registered with adental clinic

perhapsbecause,prior to arrivalatCollege,the dentalteam oftenvisited

them at school.

Senior Students’FutureOptions Guidance

At this time of the year, wewould normally behaving visits from

University and Polytechnics to help guide our senior students around

the next phase of their educational pathway.

Much of that is still happening but, like so many things, in a somewhat

modified format so that we are still able to follow the safe boundaries

recommended to us in these times of COVID-19. We have had some

visitorsand some have delivered their messages via zoom.

The important fact isthat the information is still available so that our

seniors can make informedchoices.

Music Evening

Music Eveningisonusagainand auditions have been taking place. The

eventmay be compromised as aresultofCOVID,but it is very positiveto

see agood number ofparticipants turning up. Many are there making

sure that theHouse Pointwar is maintained,and they aredoingso with

enthusiasm and talent. Time will tell whether the actual performance

happens –fingerscrossed. Weare hopeful.

Lip Sync

This year sawLip Sync go digital,and competitors have submitted their

entries online. The creativity ofsome of these budding entertainers is

outstanding.

College Choir Performances

The choirs have been busy rehearsing for their concert onthe last

nightofthe term.Inlinewith currentprotocols this will be asmall affair

held in the Ashburton Trust Event Centre foyer where asmall audience

will enjoy the amazing sound of the Phoenix Chorus when they take

‘Cocktails with the Chorus’.

This will be a‘glam event’, cocktail dresses and mocktails designed by the

Chorus will make anighttoremember.

The first Monday ofthe holidays sees the choir out again, singing for

the Pakeke Lions' 40thBirthdaycelbrations at the Hotel Ashburton.The

Pakeke Lionshave been strong supporters of the CollegeChoirs over the

years,and it will be greattojoininwith their celebrations.

Drug Detection Service

Wednesday 09September saw another visit by the New Zealand Drug

Detection Service, who came in foracouple of hours to carry outsome

canine visits to randomly selectedclassrooms.

Like all other establishments we are keen to progress our educational

supportaround the use of inappropriate substances.Keeping awatchful

eyeon this is seen as part of the overall package aroundeducationand

adeterrent forsome of our youngpeople.

Calendar Ticking forSenior Students

Spring is on us and the weather is warming up,asisthe pressureonour

senior students as the calendar clicksonbyatwhatseems like an everincreasing

Engaging Presentations and Workshops

Read NZ, Te Pou Muramura, Writers in Schools Programme brought

PhilippaWerry to our College Library on Tuesday08Septemberfor awhole

day ofvery engaging presentations and workshops, said Teacher Librarian

Anne Williams.

Anne advised that Philippa (pictured above) delighted our students with

stories about her writing world, giving insights into how she collects ideas

and expandsthem into books. Givenour experiencewith COVID-19 it was

really interesting for our students to hear about the polio epidemic that

featured in her book ‘Enemyatthe Gate’.

Philippa talked about taking snippets of history, or family stories and using

them as starters for writing. Her book ‘The Telegram’, about a post-girl who

had to deliver telegrams to people during World War I, was an example of

this. Philippa is apublisher of many ‘MyStory’style books.

Philippa ran apresentation (pictured below) during Period 1for students

interested in books, reading and writing, attended by thirty students. For

the balance ofthe day, she facilitated writing workshops for many ofour

talented junior and senior writers, numbering twenty of each level. These

students were thoroughly engaged,insmall groups,taking partinavariety

of writingexercises, andworking on their ownideas andtechniques.

Some of the many positiveresponses from our students to ‘what

did youlearn’included:

• Ilearnedmanyprocesses and ways to build acharacter,setting,and also

howtouse dialogue to my advantage.

• A huge amount! How to create characters, dialogue etc. How towrite

shortstories andfind ideas.

• Ilovedall the adviceand tips she gave us,Iwill definitely be usingthem

forfuturestories.

• The way small ideas can grow into books.The idea of using the‘what if’

statements to bring more to the story.

When asked if students had been inspired tocontinue with your

ownwriting,some answers included:

• Yes, the workshop has made me want to get back into writing. Iforgot

howmuch fun writing wasand the workshopreally justreminded me of

how good it wasand definitely inspired me to writemore.

• Ithas beenhelpfulasitmademeunderstand thatthere is acertain logic

to writing stories.Inthisaspectithas,inits ownway,encouraged me to

keep at it.

• I have. Her Workshop has helped me develop abrand new story idea!

AndI’m very grateful forit.

OutdoorEducation Classes Tackle Little Mt Peel

TwoYear 10 Outdoor Education classes benefitted from superb weather at

the startoflast week fortheir tramps to the topofLittle Mt Peel. Weenjoy

the reports from both parties.

Monday07September Trip

Teacher-in-charge Ron Carlson said that Monday dawned bright and clear

and one of the groups of the Year 10 Outdoor Education classes gathered to

travel to Peel Forest wherethey were set to tackle Little Mt Peel.

Nineteen students, with two staff (Ron Carlson and Rachel Donaldson) set

off on the journey to walk up the South Ridge track to the Trig Station at the

top, and planning to returnvia the Deer Spur track.

The trek uptook about three hours with some steep sections and alittle

bit of snow along the way. Ashort lunch break at the top inthe hut was a

welcome break,albeit with acoldwind blowing from the mountain tops.

The journey down was much easier, and with the help of aseries of

boardwalks on the upper slopes. However, most ofthe way was through

alittle run-off causing alot of mud with many squeals and yells emitting,

givenbalancewas oftendifficult.

The quicker-footed students completed the downward journey inonly an

hour and ahalf, and then spentalittle time in the cold creek at the car park

cleaning off the layers of mud!

Tuesday 08 September Trip

On Tuesdaythe second Year 10 Outdoor Education group went on their hike

up Little Mt Peel, accompanied by teacher-in-charge Luke Martin and Phys

Ed teacher Annabelle Simpson.

Luke said that many students had fond memories from their Year 8

experienceofclimbing Little Mt Peel,only to find this time would be slightly

morechallenging due to taking the South Ridge routetothe top. This route

is just alittle bit steeper than the usual Deer Spur route.

(Pictured below): Students making their wayupSouth Ridge to the summit

of Little Mt Peel.

The weather was again superb, which meant agreat day’s hiking for the

group. There were some students who found the climb pretty tough but

they persevered and made it to the top, with many ofthe students feeling

proud of what they had achieved. Itwas great tosee the groups working

together and helping each other along the way.

Congratulations

CanterburySchools’Equestrian Dressage

Twenty seven teamsfromthe wider Canterburyareacompeted in this event

on Monday07September at McLean’s IslandNational Equestrian Centre.

Teacher-in-ChargeKaren McKenzie said thatthe eventwas held understrict

COVID-19 rules. This meant there was very little contact with other teams

and, following completion of the two dressage tests, teams then had to

leave the facility.

Ashburton College currently has anew, young team, and is in arebuilding

phase. (Pictured below, left to right): Jessica Taylor and My Majic Mike,

Junior Students’Ski Trip

The second of two Junior Ski Trips was held onTuesday 08 September in

very hot spring conditions. The first trip washeld on 30 July.

Teacher-in-charge KarenMcKenzie said that, fortunately,the 40cmsnowfall

the previous week meant that thesixty seven students hadawonderful day

skiing andridingthe whole mountain. Most students had aski/snowboard

lesson, inorder to improvetheir skills.

With Mt Hutt operating under strict COVID-19 conditions, purchasing food

and drinkswas advised as rather challenging, but it was areal bonus to be

able to hold the day.

Staff involved, aside from Karen, were Vaughan Matheson, James List,

Ron Carlson and Bridget McConnochie who all enjoyed the day and said

it was good to see students participating in an outdoor activity, while

respecting the COVID rulesand behaving well.

Coming Events

Alterations due toCOVID changes will be advised directly toeach group as

Rural Accountants for Rural People

Ashburton accounting firm Falloons has rebranded and is starting anew era as Rural Business Accountants.

Anewera...

Rural Business Accountants director

Aaron Allred understands farming and

the challenges it presents. He has

lived most of his life in Methven, in a

district whose economic strength is

what grows on or from the land.

He is the third generation of Allreds

to do business in Mid Canterbury and

takes pride in getting to know his

clients and building close relationships.

His father Selwyn was in real estate

and his grandmother once owned the

Brown Pub in Methven.

Aaron came to the boutique

accounting firm 10 years ago,

becoming apartner in the business

then owned by John Falloon, in

anticipation of taking it over once he

bought the business.

Aaron studied at the University of

Canterbury and spent several years at

accounting firms in Ireland and Egypt

before returning home, where he’s

now amember of the Methven Lions

Club and still loves to ski.

Wife Tracey is anurse in ward one at

Ashburton Hospital, son Jackson (20)

is studying engineering at Canterbury

and daughter Holly (18) plans to study

nursing at Otago next year.

Aaron says he enjoys being part of a

small firm and meeting clients on-farm

or in Rural Business Accountants’

Ashburton office to help them with a

wide range of accounting and financial

needs, from tax returns and wages to

succession planning.

“Farmers are under strain at the

moment because of Government

regulations. They have been

encouraged to grow and now

they face environmental rules that

are putting unfair pressure on

their businesses. The amount of

improvement Ihave seen on-farm has

been massive but the

amount of credit given to farmers

for this has been minimal.”

Ruralsectorspecialists

Having timely and accurate business

information is critical to making the right

business decisions, whether you own

an 800-cow dairy farm, contract milk,

run stock or grow specialty seeds.

Rural Business Accountants director

Aaron Allred says his firm isall about

analysing financial information collected

during the regular course of business

and helping clients make decisions that

improve their lives. They crunch the

numbers, make sure you are compliant,

advise how to reduce tax and help with

cashflow.

Aaron says they can objectively assess

how your business is performing and

make suggestions, especially if you

are looking togrow, change or borrow

money.

The rural sector specialists offer budget

advice and analysis, sale and purchase

advice, dotax returns and tax planning.

“The main reason people have

accountants is compliance, soyou

can get your accounts into aformat

to supply them to the Inland Revenue

Department.

We can also save you money, help

structure your affairs, we can deal with

things like ACC, borrowing money and

know where you can improve things.”

While compliance isstandard business

for accountants, Aaron says an

important part is building arelationship

of trust and meeting clients face to face

helps him understand how they are

feeling about their businesses. That

may bring about areview of finances,

adiscussion about cutting back on

drawings, or scrutinising costs.

“We can also give afew ideas about

how other people are succeeding and

share good practice.”

BY ROSS KIDDIE

I've always dismissed it,but

now IfearI’m colour­blind.

Thereason being is that

whenIpicked up anew

MitsubishiMirage from the

dealership, Iaskedthe very

friendly salesman: “Isitthe

brown car out the front?’’

He replied by saying it

wasn’tbrown, butyellow, and

we got intoadebate. We

finished by agreeing it wasa

mustard colour and, as such,

it is very unusual anddifficult

to describe. It is the colourin

the photograph that

accompanies thisarticle, it is

vivid and not acolouryou

oftensee on today’s roads.

However, I’ve beenassured

it is apopular choiceand, as

in my case,acolour which

draws interest and

discussion.

The new colourcoincides

withanew exterior designfor

the Mirage.The new

generation model is sharper,

less rounded, it is edgy and

boldupfront. There’s alsoa

new interior package,there’s

alot morekit in the car,

especially for safety, while

the controls and functions

havebeenfurther designed

for easeofuse and simplicity.

Eventhough the Mirage is

built in Thailand, it

encompassesthe easy­to­use

Japanesedesignphilosophy.

Insidethe compact body

shell, the wee Mirage makes

gooduse of its proportions.

It’s abit of asqueeze in the

rearfor any morethan two

occupants, but there is

appropriate leg andhead

room, likewise up front. The

driver sitsalittle high in the

seat, but other than that the

driving positionis

comfortable. For those who

are less thanagile,gettingin

and out of the driver’s seatis

abreeze because of its height,

there’s no stressput on the

hips.

Elsewhere, the Mirage sits

on much the sameplatformas

before,although asI’ve just

alluded to, thereare

upgradesthroughout which

further enhances itsfive­star

Australasian NewCar

Assessment Program safety

rating.

Underthe rear hatchback

arealies a235­litre load area,

extendingto912 litres with

the rear seats folded. At the

other end sits a1.2­litre,

three­cylinder,twincamshaft,

12­valvepetrol

engine. It hasmodest power

outputs of 58kW and 102Nm,

but the Mirage is light at

895kg so the engine creates

useful, adequateand thrifty

performance.

Mitsubishi has been busy

refining this engine. There’s

no denying the characteristic

tone that accompanies the

three­pot design, but it’s not

overbearingand Iquite like

the honest, deliberate wayin

which it sounds.

Drive is through

continuously variable

transmission. Thereare no

surprises here and no driveractivated

controls. What you

get is asimplesystem that

works well. CVTdoesn’t load

the engine whichallows it to

workwithin its ownfreedom

parameters, it never feels low

on revs,pick­up is always

deliveredatthe driver’s will.

The Mirageisno

powerhouse and acceleration

fits within its designconcept,

it will make astandstill to

100km/h in 13sec.

However, what doesmatter

the most is whatthe Mirage

achievesin terms on fuel

usage,Mitsubishi claimsa

five­litre per 100km combined

cycle average. During my time

in the test car Idid alot of

inner­city commuting and

short low speed journeys,

evenso, the fuel usage

readout was listing an average

of 6l/100km when Itook the

car back to the dealership.

That included my longopen

roadjourney which offered an

amazing 3.4l/100km

instantaneous figureat

100km/h, the enginespinning

overfreely at 2000rpm.

Three­cylinder engines are

generally strongon torque and

it responds well to mid­range

throttle request, an overtaking

manoeuvre (80­120km/h) can

be achieved in 9sec. With the

freedomofCVT the engine

builds revs andinitiates

momentum quickly,well akin

to its roleanyway.

The Mirage also feels light

from behind the wheel, the

electric power steeringsystem

doesn’t affordalot of

feedback,but the tyres (175/55

x15in Bridgestone Potenza)

are of highqualityand have

high grip levels.

It is also the perfect city

runaboutwith vision and

manoeuvrabilitywell

manufactured into the car. I

like it for its build quality and

engineering aspects whichare

just so downright honest,

bearing in mind that

Mitsubishi hasa10­year/

and afive­year/130,000km

INCREASING DAIRY

COWFERTILITY

Texas A&M University research

shows the stronger the intensity ofa

cow’s estrous(heat), the better

chance shehas of holding a

pregnancy. Findings mayhelp dairy

farmers improveherdfertility with a

ensure animals are put up for AI

whenestrous intensity is strongest.

Keeping rural women connected

Marg Verrall has been named Rural

Women NewZealand(RWNZ) Mid

Canterburyprovincial president.

Amemberofthe Winchmore branchof

RWNZ,Marg is looking forward to the

challenge but mindfulofthe work done by

othersinthe role.

“Thepeople before me have done great

jobs, it’s abit daunting there are big shoes

to fill.”

Marg got involved with RWNZ after

beingencouraged, for many years, by

neighbourNgaireBrown.

She resisted until her three children,

now adults withchildren of their own,

were older as she supported their

sportingactivities.Itincluded being

involvedwith AllentonNetballClub,

where she is alife member.

RWNZ startedasthe Women’s Division

of the Farmer’s Unionin1925, and is vocal

at anational level on range of rural sector

services such as health,education,

environment andsocial issues.

Mid Canterburystill hasthree active

branches: Anama, Lynnfordand

Winchmore, as wellasindividual

members.

Marg moved to Winchmore after

marrying Bob in the 1970s.

Their property along State Highway 77

between Ashburton andMethvenhas been

in the Verrall family now over four

generations.Bob is the third generation

farmeronthe 205hectare farm.

There is alot of diversification on farm

with cropping, fattening cattle,grazing

and sileage operations duringthe year,

Marg said.

Theyalsorun Winchmore Gardens, by

appointment during the summerseason,

to showcase thehomestead’s 1.8 hectare

gardenstoothers.

Marg is charmed by the history of the

property andfeelsanemotional

It was named Winchmore by the lease

holder George Hart in 1853, whonamed it

after his birth place,WinchmoreHill, in

London.

He planted the grounds to resemble his

birthplacewith asemi­circulardriveway,

large vegetable and flower gardens.

In the past therewere dedicated

vegetable gardens full of produce to

sustain the homestead household, Marg

said.

There arestill wellingtonia trees, aged

up to 160 years, growing in the extensive

gardens which have kept many original

designfeatures, with modifications, as

well as akissing gatefrom the era.

Bob’s grandfather, HarryMiles Verrall,

bought the property in 1928 and farmed

sheep. Bob’s father, Ken, eventually

bought the Winchmore block in 1966. His

wife, Rosalie, was an avidgardener and

Graeme Frew and his Russian fighter Yak3

plane at Ashburton Airport at the weekend.

Noisy Yak

finds fans

At least four thrillseekers took up the

chance to fly in aRussianYak 3fighter

plane, aptly named Full Noise, at the

weekend.

The Russian fighter Yak3 plane,

scheduled to be here last month, was at

AshburtonAirportoffering those who were

willing, and able to pay, aonce­in­a­lifetime

opportunity of a20­minute flightoverthe

Ashburtondistrict and beyond.

Full Noise ownerGraemeFrew, of

Blenheim,said it was one of the best fighter

planes that theRussians produced in the

Second WorldWar.

He has owneditsince 2004 and considers

its purchase amemorable moment.

‘‘It was one of those Iwish, Iwonder,why

not moments,and Ijust made it work,’’ he

said.

The Yak3 was restored over time at Jem

AviationLtd in Blenheim and finally flew at

the Wanaka Air Show in 2012.

‘‘I bought it as aproject and had it

restored in Blenheim ... andI’ve been

figuring out how to try and pay for it ever

since.’’

Its ongoing maintenance has nottobeen

too difficulttomaintain,

‘‘It’s agood mixofRussianand American

hardware and believeitornot alot of the

Russian stuffispretty easy to findstill. The

enginescan still getthem overhauled and

the propeller is offaDC3 so it’s all pretty

common stuff,’’ he said.

It’s been‘‘flying beautifully’’.

Mr Frewhas beenanAir NewZealand

pilot for the past25years.

Prior to that he was in the New Zealand

Air Force first signing up as an engineer

aged 16 years old. He thendid apilots

course while in the air force.

In his Yak 3heregularly stopsoveratthe

AshburtonAirportasit’s apopular fuelling

destination.

‘‘They’re so supportive,’’ he said of the

district’s aviation community.

He was joined on the Ashburtonflying

trip by fellow pilot Ryan Southam who also

tookover some ofthe flying duties.

Mr Frewsaid during national Covid­19

lockdownaplan was hatched to offer rides

to people in the Yak 3.

Arear seat wasinstalled andanitinerary

planned. Aplanned visit to Ashburtonlast

monthwas delayed due to Covid­19 but it

went aheadatthe weekend.

The Yak 3has aV12 engine with 1250

horsepower and travels at an average speed

of 420km/hour. It has atop speed of 600km/

hour.

‘‘It burns afair bit of fuelgoingfrom Ato

Bbut you’re also going afair speed as well,’’

he said.

It was built as ashort range interceptor so

afull tank will empty in around 90 minutes

flyingtime.

The rides were tailoredtosuitcustomers

andcould include thethrill of speed or

acrobatic flying.

But Mr Frew said they werenot into
