Jodel D.18 ZK-JVG (c/n GM05) getting some fine tuning at "The Landing Spot" at Rangiora on Wednesday the 13th. This is Graeme Main's project number five (hence the c/n).
A stranger in town was this Cessna A185F Skywagon 11 ZK-MCR (c/n A185F-04429).
This aircraft arrived in Dunedin on 24-12-1984 and was registered on 01-01-1985 to The Mount Cook Group. It has been a ski plane ever since; now with Aoraki Mount Cook Ski Planes Ltd. It dropped in from West Melton for some fuel - so reading between the lines - Richard Royds is using it in lieu of his usual Cessna 180 ZK-BKG.
