Fairchild, Swearingen Metroliner and a Raven 11.
Above is the remains of the Fairchild F27 Friendship N385BA (c/n 24). If memory serves me right it had aspirations of joining our register as ZK-DQU but due to a dose of corrosion it was withdrawn before NZ certification and ended being used by the local crash fire team.
2 on 24-06-2003. It went to Peter Morrison at Darfield Helicopters on 11-08-2009 and was re-registered to ZK-IFD on 17-02-2011 for onward sale to Andrew Fraser of Mt Cecil Trophy Deer Stud Ltd on 28-02-2011.
