Masterton Cessna's. Three more.

                         
ZK-JHS is a Cessna 185C Skywagon with the c/n of 185C-0677 which started life in New Guinea in 1964 and moved to Australia in about the early 1970's. It ferried in from Norfolk  Island to Auckland on 15-07-1993 to become ZK-JHS on 29-07-1993 with Stephenson's Pharmacy at Whitianga. The brighter "ZK" marks are a later addition, required for its off shore trip over the ditch.
ZK-JKH is a 1977 version of the Cessna A185F AgCarryall with a c/n A185F-03249. It had earlier aspirations of becoming ZK-EHL but it was sold by Dalhoff & King Aviation to John Harding of Rangitikei Air Services of Taihape; so  it adopted his initials of JKH. In March of 1983 it went to Aspiring Air at Wanaka and then to Peter Bowmar of Gore (now Wanaka) in late November of 1987.
ZK-KRM is a Cessna 180H Skywagon , c/n 180H-51889 . It served time in PNG from new in 1968 until ferrying into Auckland from Lord Howe Island on 19-04-1994. Again its registration is derived from the first owners initials. It was listed on 12-05-1994 to K R McKay of Tuakau, then to the Ardmore Flying School in October of 1995. It is now with the KRM Partnership.
