Omaka as Seen by Grant Newman (1)

Grant Newman has sent photos from Classic Fighters 2013, and below I post some that have not been covered on NZCivair so far.

The interesting local Marlborough Aero Club Cessna 172 ZK-OMK, in front of the Aero Club hangar.  It is ex-N7010A and was registered to the club on very recently, 30/11/12.  I think it is the only tailwheel C 172 in New Zealand (There was a tailwheel C 175 ZK-BCR some years ago).  This aircraft must have a long history - come in Blue Bus!

A duo of Pitts's:  First is Model S-2A ZK-PIT, recently purchased by Sean Husheer of Napier.

Followed by John Eaton's magnificent Model 12 ZK-PTS from North Shore.

And a duo of retired ag aircraft:  Hallett Griffin's DHC-2 Beaver ZK-AZB, in accurate historical colours.

Followed by Yeoman YA-1 Cropmaster in a modern colour scheme.
