At long last this BK117 was outside Oceania undergoing engine runs. No identity displayed unfortunately however several months ago I noted it marked as III which would make it ZK-III/1 c/n 1077. This machine was de-registered back on 16Sep08 but has remained at Oceania so what is it registered now? It doesn't appear to have returned to the ZK register as anything else and ZK-III is now on a Notar.
Ardmore Flying School's latest machines where in a good position for snapping today with ZK-TAG heading off for what may have been its first flight as its originated from the Flightline hanger.
Also outside Flightline was C172 ZK-JMR. This aircraft has recently spent time in the adjacent paint shop although it has been on the register since April 2008 so perhaps it took a long time for it to arrive from the USA.
A long way from home was Invercargill based Piper PA28-181 ZK-EBQ in a new scheme since I last saw it.
