Stationair ZK-EJH

The Cessna U206G Stationair N7391N c/n U20603648 ferried into NZ on 01-03-1977 and was dealt with by Dalhoff and King Aviation Ltd at Ardmore to become ZK-EJH on 26-04-1977 and went on line with the Dalhoff  and King Flying School from the 9th of the following month.
I seem to recall that it struck a fence at Te Araroa towards the end of September of 1977.
It is seen below at Ardmore on 04-09-1979 wearing the "Rex" logo on its fin.
It was sold to Jim Small of Taihoa in the Hakataramea Valley in November of 1981 replacing the                                                Auster J5P Super Autocar ZK-BLZ.
And above we see it on the McCaw gliding strip in the Hakataramea Valley in January of 1982.
(And no - that is not Richie).
Then we see it at Oamaru as race number 26 on an unknown date.
Above at West Melton on 30-03-1989.

It has been in the Haka Valley ever since but with ownership passing to Nathan Small on 28-02-2004.
