Grayson Ottaway has kindly forwarded these two shots of aircraft noted at Tauranga.
Mooney M20C Mk21 ZK-CPF (c/n M20C-3240) was cranked out as N6040Q and joined our register on 02-11-1965 with Aero Engine Services Ltd at Hamilton.
By about mid-1983 it was with Rob Mackley of Mackley Aviation Ltd and transferred to the Kaipara Aviation Trust in 1999.
It took part in the 2001 London to Sydney Air Race and was relisted to the M20C Mooney Syndicate in early 2005.
Since then it has undergone a serious rebuild.
It was noted at NZTG on Mothers Day.
Spied on the 15th was the Pelican Club GS ZK-MAL2 (c/n 524) of Wallace Pendray.
Whitianga based these days I believe.
