 This Hoffman H 36 Dimona ZK-GCB2 (c/n 3537) is listed to the GCB Syndicate of Drury. So it was a good distance from home. This ex Thai military motor glider first came on the NZ register for Dave McMillan on 20-03-2004.

An earlier post on this aircraft can be seen at :-
Can anyone confirm its African history - I have conflicting details on this ?
Just about back in the air is the De Havilland DH82A ZK-BER (c/n 844) of the Omaka Real Flying Club of Blenheim. 
It was built in Australia and originally destined for the Royal Rhodesian Air Force but was retained in Australia as A17-712
It entered the Australian civil aircraft register as VH-BEX in May of 1954. It became ZK-BER on 17-08-2004.
