Cropdusters at Pukekohe East 29-8-2017

On my way back from Ngaruawahia it was a short detour to call in at Pukekohe East airstrip, where it was great to see the Cropduster's hangar open to the late afternoon sun.

 In the hangar were their Gippsland GA 200C ZK-NTO (not a Fatman I am told),

and their 300 HP Continental powered FU 24 ZK-SFL which I was told didn't fly much.  However only a few days later it was at Ardmore.

The road fence at the upper end of the strip still bore the scars where the Wittman Tailwind ZK-XMC recently hit it.
