Piper J-3C Cub ZK-AHC (c/n 2709) first flew in the USA on 11-02-1939. It arrived in NZ in May of 39 and went to the Nelson Aero Club with whom it carried the name "Brig Arrow". It was stored during World War Two and then went to Waikato Aviation Ltd followed by numerous private owners. One of these was W J Funnell of Pahiatua (about March 1970 I think). In more recent time it has been listed with J L Peace of Manakau City from 13-05-1985; to D T Paquette on Waiheke Island from 21-12-1994 and then to Venture Aviation (John Funnell) of Taupo since 13-09-2004. I have heard that it has not flown for some time due to engine problems !
