Hurricane Tim free pdf The gripping biography of one of New Zealand's most distinguished farmers, entreprenuers and aviation heroes. When Tim Wallis's Spitfire crashed at Wanaka airfield in 1996, his accident was reported around the world. This lion-hearted Central Otago man, whose life of risk, adventure and success was the stuff of legend, was, in seconds, literally brought to his knees. Sir Tim Wallis is known as the pilot and hunter who pioneered New Zealand's deer industry. He's the man behind Warbirds over Wanaka, he's had a lifelong passion for collecting, restoring and flying fighter planes (he has the largest private collection of fighter planes in the Southern Hemisphere), and he's also the multi-millionaire who with his three sons and wife runs the innovative Minaret Station.
