Meteorological conditions have prevented my regular Friday pie run to Rangiora – but today was a real winter cracker of a day.
Here we see a few of the aircraft worthy of note.
The Rowan Rudd Denney Kitfox ZK-FYM (c/n 1113/AACA/770) was returned to the register on 26th of June.
See HERE for an earlier post.
It is now powered with a 90hp Rotax 670 onto a carbon fibre Warp Drive propeller
It was inspected by the ‘men from the ministry’ this morning.
The Guimbal Cabri G2 ZK-HLU (c/n 1101) of Christchurch helicopters has featured here previously but I think this is the first time in this scheme.
New to the register on the 26th of June was the Flying Road Cone Syndicates Australian Aviation Works Karatoo J6 C ZK-KTW (c/n 004MS).
It also had its CAA inspection today.
A new paint job for the ICS Savannah S ZK-MYN (c/n 14-11-54-0359).
Vanessa’s Pride and Joy.
It has featured here several time – see Here.
Below – the sunny side shows the colour better.
Originally imported by Dave McMillan of Greymouth this Rans S-6S Coyote II ZK-OFF (c/n 0895873) went up to Les Smith of Picton in October of 2015.
It moved south to Swannanoa for Andrew McAllister last October.
It still totes its old US registration on its fin and under fuselage fillet.
