RV 6 ZK-SJC (c/n 24846) was registered to Steve J Chilcott of Auckland on 9/6/20. Steve was working on re-assembling his new aircraft when I visited (you can just see him in the cockpit). Steve has also built Jodel D 18 ZK-SCJ and Menestrel ZK-TBS, and also has a Tipsy Nipper project underway.
In addition to the warbirds that I have posted from Ardmore last week, there were a couple of “new” Vans aircraft that were shipped to New Zealand from Australia recently:
The RV 6 was built in Australia as VH-COB.
And the other “new” Vans aircraft was a RV 7 ex VH-BZV that will become ZK-RVS3 in due course.
