Just another Beaver !

I dug this colour slide out of the shoe box the other day, and after a little clean up it copied ok.
I would imagine it is one that has not been seen by too many of you blog watchers.

De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver ZK-CTJ c/n 1596 was imported by Hawker Siddeley Aviation Ltd of Wellington and registered on 14-11-1966. It was used as a demonstrator and was seen fitted with skis and as in this view it has the "can" fitted for ag work.
It flew out of Auckland on 29-05-1969 and ended up in Kenya as 5Y-AIW with the Desert Locust Control.
[I have seen different registration dates for this one - any confirmation please] & (did it fly all the way to Kenya ?)
ZK-CTJ at Wellington in November 1967.
