Rockwell 114 ZK-ELL First Flight

Further to an earlier post, Rockwell 114 ZK-ELL took to the skys over Hawkes Bay for the first time on 9 Nov 2010 for an operational check flight with Hawkes Bay & East Coast Aero Club CFI Max Dixon at the controls.

C/n 14229 this aircraft rolled out of the factory in early 1977 and was shipped to Belgium with the registration OO-TTC. In December 1996 it was re-registered to N747WW. July 1998 saw the registration change to N96ET. The owner informed me that this aircraft was upgraded at the factory and used as a poster aircraft to advertise the 114B. As mentioned in a previous post this aircraft is fitted with Garmin 430 avionics.A part of this aircrafts history is that it took part in the Flight Across America in memory of the events on 11 September 2001.
