Prince Harry's NZ plans revealed

His schedule in the Northern Territory with the 1st Brigade has included flight simulation training, riding in an Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (Tiger), physical training and preparing for field exercises.


But it hasn't been all work and no play for the prince.

After meeting with wounded and injured Australian soldiers he joined a game of wheelchair footy.

Earlier, while on duty with the North-West Mobile Force he got a lesson in bush survival and sourcing food and water, camping out two nights in the remote Kununurra region in Western Australia.

He also met local Aboriginal children and elders at the community of Wuggubun.

The prince will travel to Turkey for the 100th anniversary of the first Anzac landing in Gallipoli this week.

He'll resume his stint with Australian Army joining units in Perth and Sydney upon his return.

This cockpit recording shows Prince Harry flying as a passenger in a Spitfire flight from Boultbee Flight Academy at Goodwood via the Isle of Wight. This was recorded when Prince Harry went to meet Alan Robinson and Nathan Forster - the two successful candidates of an Endeavour Fund backed Spitfire Scholarship, which the Prince launched last year to get two wounded servicemen flying the classic machine. The scholarship draws inspiration from the pilot Douglas Bader who flew throughout the Second World War with 20 individual aerial victories despite losing both his legs in 1931. It will culminate with both Alan and Nathan flying with 35 Spitfires and Hurricanes in the South of England Flypast on the 15th of September this year to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Please note due to the nature of the cockpit recording, the sound quality of this clip is not good.
