The mysterious Jean210 reports from Dargaville.
 First registered on 17-09-2015 to Stephen Williams was this Aeroprakt A-22LS ZK-CKL2 (c/n 243).
It was handed over to its new owner at Mercer and flown up to its new home at Dargaville yesterday (30-09-2015).
Departing from Dargaville on the 26th was the Dargaville Aero Club's Cessna 172N ZK-JBA (c/n 17269303).
A 1977 model it was first registered in NZ on 20-08-1992 with J A Lambly of Whangarei. It moved to the Jessop Foster Syndicate still at NZWR from 13-05-1993 and then to the Northland Districts Aero Club Inc at NZWR on 03-04-1999. 
From 26-01-2000 it was listed to the Northern Wairoa Aero Club at Dargaville and then to the Dargaville Aero Club.
Somewhere along the way it was converted to a 180hp Penn Yan Aero O-360-A4M (SuperHawk) conversion and also had a Horton STOL kit fitted.
It has migrated to a new owner at Rotorua.
