North Shore's resident Nanchang CJ 6A ZK-FRU was also outside at North Shore Airfield on Saturday. This particular Nanchang wears an authentic Peoples Liberation Army Air Force scheme with the constructors number on the tail and 01 on the nose, as a registered colour scheme. The 01 is because this was the first Nanchang CJ 6 to be exported out of China. It was registered as VH-NNA in Australia in 1990. It was purchased by Graham Frew of North Shore who flew it to New Zealand in November 2000 and it was first registered on 13/12/00. On 16/2/09 ownership passed to the Nanchang 01 syndicate of North Shore. This aircraft has its own website: http://www.nanchang01.com/
The Nanchang CJ 6 was manufactured in the thousands in China between 1958 and 1966 and the CJ 6A is powered by a Zhuzhou Huosai HS 6 9 cylinder radial engine of 285 HP.
