A few minutes at Rangiora early Sunday afternoon caught the Aerospool Dynamic WT9 ZK-DYK2 (D314/2009) scurrying out.
This Dynamic was originally registered as ZK-FUZ2 on 08-10-2009 to Bridget and David Jones of Picton.
It was sold to Kevin Slattery of Rangiora as recently as 02-08-2016 and was re-registered as ZK-DYK on 09-08-2016.
As a matter of interest Keven's previous Dynamic ZK-EWW was sold the other way - to Picton.
The Best Off Skyranger Vmax ZK-MAI3 (c/nSKR0308388) is in the process of receiving some tender loving care from its latest owner Mike Dimmmock.
Above we see the months progress on the Graeme Main TEAM Hi-Max.
Below is from a post on 13-08-2016
One that has come out of the woodwork - so to speak - is this TEAM Hi-Max project which was started by Jeffery Bryant about twenty five years ago. The wings and basic fuselage had been done but for reasons various it was never completed. It was acquired recently from the rafters of a nearby hangar by Graeme Main and work is now underway with the help of Chris Pennell to complete this project.
You may remember that Jeff has operated the Piper Colt ZK-BSL, Jodel DR1051 ZK-JOD, Pterodactyl Ascender ZK-EYZ. Solo Wings Windlass Aquilla ZK-MDM and the Bernard Webb Spyder Monoplane ZK-WEB and probably others that have slipped my mind.
It is in good hands because Graeme Main has owned/operated/built the Ultralight Flight Phantom ZK-EGS, Thruster Gemini ZK-FLS, Kolb Twinstar ZK-FVK, Rand KR-2 ZK-KRJ, Facet Sapphire ZK-SAP, Pulsar ZK-KEN, Skyranger ZK-MAI, Jodel D.18 ZK-JPK and ZK-JVG, the Bobcat ZK-JKI, plus the Alpi 200 ZK-MGK.
The Canterbury Aero Club were out in force today (competitions).
Here we see the Robin ZK-VCD leading two Cherokees to the holding point whilst another departs to the East.
