Cessnas and a Yak from Queenstown

There were plenty of aircraft at Queenstown but these four took my attention.

Cessna 185F ZK-DKJ is now owned by Andrew J Bowman of Gore.  Those are big tyres!

Cessna 185F ZK-ENW is owned by Air Milford 2000 Ltd of Queenstown.

Cessna 172P ZK-ETT is owned by the Wakatipu Aero Club.  I thought that this looked a bit different, and the difference turned out to be the dark covers on its wings and tailplane, maybe as a protection against icing?

And Yak 52 ZK-YKA of Double X Aviation was similarly covered.  I did see this aircraft flying one afternoon when were visiting.  Double X Aviation also had Harvard ZK-XSA and Aero L 29 ZK-JET on the airfield offering tourist flights.
