Above is the Walter powered Fletcher Fu24 ZK-EML (c/n 264) which has been out of the air for some months whilst its engine was repaired. This has been re-fitted and it now awaits final checks from the Wanganui Aero Work engineers. It is likely to return to Omaka and allow the FU24-950 ZK-EGK to go back north.
Below is the Fletcher FU24-550GT Crusader ZK-DDX (c/n 160).
This had moved up from Oamaru to cover for ZK-EML whilst its engine was sorted out.
It had a wire strike near Paturau on 02-06-2011 during sowing operation but landed back at its strip ok. It is now back in the air again.
Not far from the scrapyard is the Piper PA31-350 Chieftain ZK-MYS (c/n 31-7652032) with engine away for a bulk strip following a landing with the nosewheel still up. Note one of the propellers in the foreground.
