Barber Snark ZK-JEK

04 January saw the unfortunate demise of NZ homegrown microlight Barber Snark ZK-JEK.  The aircraft burst into flames after landing at Ardmore and thankfully the occupants escaped unharmed, however as can be seen in the images the Snark is effectively no more.

Happier times, ZK-JEK at Ardmore in July 2013.


  1. Exceedingly lucky that it happened on the ground, sad end to an aircraft.

  2. Only saw this a/c about three months ago - first of type for me. Unique and hope does not mean end of flying for the others.
