The contract, awarded by the TATA Power Company of India through its Stra- tegic Electronics Division (TATA Power SED), is a real coup, says Radiola Aerospace managing director Brent Albiston. TATA Power SED holds a prime contract with the Indian Ministry of Defence to mod- ernise facilities, including the installation of aircraft landing systems and other navi- gation aids, at airfields operated by the Indian Air Force. Following several meetings with TATA, Radiola Aerospace was invited to bid for the flight inspection work. That we have been awarded this contract against intense international competition is testament to the company's worldwide repu- tation as a professional supplier of flight inspection services,'' says Mr Albiston. Radiola Aerospace staff based in New Zea- land and Britain will conduct the missions using Diamond 42 aircraft from the company's British partner, Diamond Execu- tive Aviation Ltd. Radiola Aerospace has delivered flight inspection and flight validation services in more than 25 countries in the past three years. In 2011 it installed and commissioned aeronautical navigation aids at inter- national airports in Papua New Guinea and the Cook Islands. Pictures tell inlet stories Snap happy: Photography enthusiasts and regular contestants in the Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet photo competition Reuben Love, Joe Love, Kensuke Tomioka, Elly Love and Marie Love. When Plimmerton resident Marie Love takes her grand- children to the Pauatahanui Inlet with cameras in hand, what do these budding photographers look for? As regular entrants in the Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet annual photo competition, the Love children all have a winning eye. Sixteen-year-old Elly won the Nature category in the youth section last year with a photo of a fantail but she thinks her best winning shot was in the Rec- reation category in the previous year's competition. She says that photo arose out of boredom. I was just sitting in the car, pretty bored, because the weather was rotten and I couldn't get any decent shots. Nan was out there doing her own thing with her camera, so I rubbed the cobwebs off the wing mirror and used it to frame a few interesting shots.'' Reuben, 12, was lining up a shot of some seagulls sitting on a post, but before he managed to push the button, the seagulls took wing and Reuben was left with an unexpected photo of fly- ing birds, their legs still dangling clumsily beneath them. It impressed judge Geoff Marshall and won the youth prize in the Nature category. Elly, Reuben and brother Joe, also a previous winner, credit their Nan with encouraging them to photograph the Inlet and enter the competition. It's a great activity to do with grandchildren,'' Marie says. I take them one at a time, because it gives us special time together. Besides, they all like to photograph different things. They've learnt to really look at the inlet and see what's there.'' The Love children have also learnt that a trip to the inlet with Nan might get a bit grubby. They do an ever-so- subtle eye roll when Marie talks of how they enjoy sloshing'' around on the mudflats to get photos of spoonbills. She loves getting her shoes muddy,'' says Elly. The competition is now in its 12th year and entries close on April 1. This year the categories are Nature, Recreation, Human Impact and a new category, Artistic: any subject. This is for entrants who like to bring extra creative flair to their prints through enhance- ment programmes such as Photoshop. In the other three categories only improvements to sharpness, straightness, colour and contrast are permit- ted. As an incentive for younger photographers, Harvey Norman is giving a Panasonic camera to the best photo by an entrant aged under 18. Kapi-Mana News will once again be calling on readers to cast their vote for their favour- ite shot from the category winners, with great prizes up for grabs. Full details of the competition are available on the Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet website, gopi.org.nz.
