Meanwhile Magnaman was checking out Ardmore and found these two items if great interest.
The Piper PA-31-325 Navajo VH-OOI (c/n 31-7912032) is seen above at Ardmore.
This arrived into Timaru from Australia on 24-03-2000 and was NZ certified as ZK-WSB to Rob Borius-Broek of Christchurch on 10-04-2000.

ZK-NOW was ferried from Timaru to Feilding on 22-10-2014 for extensive restoration work for its new Australian owners Cockles Pty Ltd of Albany, West Australia with whom it was register on 16-06-2015.
Its NZ registration was cancelled on 20-08-2015 for it to become VH-OOI on the 26th with Philip Hooper of Albany, WA.
The Kawasaki BK117 B-2 ZK-HYI3 (c/n 1011) was a Japanese import for listing to Rick Lucas Helicopters Ltd on 21-06-2005.
With the collapse of Rick Lucas Helicopters/Helipro their machines have slowly found new owners.
This BK117 was re-listed to ITC Leasing Inc of Shinkawa, Japan on 02-06-2015.
So will it go back to its original JA9720 registration soon ?
