I was very surprised to see ZK-LET in its latest jet transformation in Grant Nicholl's hangar at Tauranga on 10 July. I think the jet engine is out of a drone, and it produces 1,000 pounds of thrust in its current form. Later a reduction cone will be bolted on to the jet nozzle which Grant said will provide 2,000 pounds of thrust! It has flown three times to date.
There was also an amazing collection of other homebuilt aircraft in Grant's hangar: Seawork's Seawind amphibian ZK-SWK, Harry Harris' microlight Spitfire replica ZK-JNM, Grant's other aircraft: Bede BD 5B ZK-XBD, Q 200 ZK-FWF being worked on, and as can be seen in the foreground of the photo: Russel Borman's Puffer Cozy ZK-COZ.
