Timaru on Thursday March 1st # 4

 Cessna A152 Aerobat ZK-TAY(c/n A1520921) is a 1979 model which began its NZ career as ZK-NPL with the New Plymouth Aero Club (Inc) from 29-07-2008.
It moved over to the Tauranga Aero Club (Inc) from 06-08-2013 and was re-registered to ZK-TAY2 on 18-07-2017.
Previous mention of ZK-NPL can be seen HERE
and previous pics of ZK-TAY and be found Here
 Two different Robins types to ponder. 
Above is the Robin R2160 ZK-TZD (c/n 358) as listed with R B and J F Pearce of Whangaparaoa.
Below we have the Robin R2120U ZK-TZK (c/n 362) of the North Shore Aero Club (Inc).
Note the different size and shape of the rudder and the rear under fuselage strake on TZD.
Also the 'power hump' on the cowling of TZD and the different outlets for the engine exhaust.
 The Cessna 180 ZK-WGT is c/n 30012 making it the earliest production 180 in NZ.
It is however a late arrival - joining the register on 05-01-2007 with Wendy and George Thompson of Otorohanga.
