This one served with the RAF as TW387 before hitting the UK civil register as G-ANHY with R K Dundas on 03-02-1955 for onward sale to NZ.
It became ZK-BGU on 06-04-1955 and achieved its CofA on 04-05-1955 for A M Bisley and Co Ltd of Hamilton. After five further owners it was listed with Dave Duxbury, John McDonald and K J Kelly of Christchurch on 18-11-1980.
It has been stored for the last fourteen years and just got airworthy again in December.
