Photo supplied / Nelson Mail / Martin de Ruyter History documented HOWICK chaplain Reverend Dr Richard Waugh has produced a book regarded as the largest regional aviation history published in New Zealand. Aviation historian Mr Waugh, the senior minister at East City Wesleyan Church, in Burswood, and national superintendant of the Wesleyan Methodist Church of NZ, has co-authored The Story of Nelson Aviation with Graeme McConnell, a stalwart of the Avia- tion Historical Society. Nelson Airport serves more than 750,000 passengers annually, is the hub for the country’s largest regional airline, Air Nelson, and is the fourth busiest airport for scheduled flights in the country. The book was launched at the airport’s recent 75th anniversary celebrations. It includes profiles of personali- ties, aircraft, airlines and organisa- tions. A detailed chapter describes World War II years when RNZAF Station Nelson took over the air- port with an operational squadron flying for part of the time. Mr Waugh says thousands of young men and women would have served at Nelson in 1941-1946. The book also covers air acci- dents over the years and detailed histories of airlines, such as Air Albatross, Origin Pacific, along with Air Nelson. For the past 15 years, Mr Waugh has served as honorary chaplain to the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators in New Zealand, and is the only civil aviation chaplain in the country. He has initiated, organised and officiated at all the significant commemorations, many unit anniversaries and other nota- ble aviation events, airline staff reunions and re-enactments across the nation. At the start of November, the guild presented Mr Waugh with the New Zealand region’s Master’s Trophy for 2013, “in recognition of his aviation chaplaincy and his outstanding work recording and celebrating the history of airline development in New Zealand”. The Story of Nelson Aviation is A4 size, contains 336 pages and more than 500 photographs and illustrations. It costs $74.90 and is available from Readaway Books, in Picton Street, Howick.
