Mix of 3.

These three photographs sent in by Matt Hayes were taken over the last few days.
Below is the Walter powered Fletcher Fu24-950 ZK-DJE (c/n 176) taken at Fox Glacier on 30-12-2011 in its Skydive Fox Glacier scheme.
ZK-DJE previously operated out of Motueka under the Skydive Abel Tasman banner. Its place there has been taken by the Pilatus PC-6/B2-H4 ZK-XIT (c/n 653) as seen below outside its hangar at Motueka on 03-01-2012.
Captured at Nelson on 04-01-2012 was this Cessna 441 Conquest 11 VH-LEM (c/n 441-0081) of Fugro Spatial Solutions Pty Ltd. It arrived at Wellington on 10-12-2011 from Goulborn and Canberra and later departed for Nelson where it will be based while working in the Cook Strait area. It departed Nelson for Auckland and Lord Howe Island today (05-01-2012).


  1. Nice to see a pic of Vince in his office, DJE. Thats the hardest he has ever worked! How many guys can say they really love what they do all day, I know Vince does. Proud Dad.

    It's a shame really - but as they say - somebody has to do it.
