Don't have many kites like that down here, and pylon racing is not big.
(I think there was a warbird (A Harvard?) pranged enroute to one in
Tasmania last year sometime.)

There are a few flyable warbirds in various semi-private hands, but
Spit's and the like are very thin on the ground. I think there are less
than half a
dozen Mustangs in the country, and only 2 flyable Spits.

Been a while for me too. I miss it badly, but I just can't afford it
