Four seldom seens at Rangiora.

 The Jabiru SK80 ZK-DAM2 (c/n 092) has been listed to Colin Ashby Consulting of Warkworth since July of 1998. This dainty little aircraft entered our register for Dick Jones and Mark Pfahlert under the New Zealand Wholesale Jade Company name on 28-01-1997.
 Back together again is the First Strike Bobcat ZK-JKI (c/n RAANZ/627) of Graeme Main.
Graeme intends to use it on the milk run from his small strip at his Rolleston property - to Rangiora - much quicker than driving.
The Sam Fry Laser 230 ZK-LZR (c/n 31) came onto our register on 09-03-2011for Fred Zayas of Fernside. I have yet to see it turn a prop blade in anger.
Previous posts on this aircraft can be viewed by entering "LZR" in the search box towards the top left of your screen.
This was my first sighting of the Europa Classic Monowheel ZK-MOF (c/n 130).
Below is what the NZ Aviation News magazine said about it after its registration in NZ on 07-03-2013.
"We welcome a Europa Classic Monowheel to our register. This is a much travelled amateur built aircraft. Its construction was commenced in NZ and the registration of ZK-PKA was pencilled in for it however it was shipped to the US and certified there on 29-11-1999 as N1960J to Europa 130 Inc of Wilmington, Delaware. This is another way of saying John Bampfylde. It was then taken to Australia where John registered it as VH-JXN on 23-12-2003, initially at Albert Park, Victoria and then from Pullenvale in Queensland from June of 2005. It was transferred to the Australian Ultralight Federation register as 19-7327 and is now in NZ and listed as ZK-MOF".
It is still listed with John Bampfylde.
