Magnificent Recreation of Lockheed 10A Electra ZK-AFD

Readers of this blog will have been aware of Rob Mackley's rebuild of his Model 10A Electra in his hangar at Ardmore.  I have briefly referred to this in an earlier post at:  http://nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/2011/06/more-ardmore.html  and it has also been well covered in Ivor Wilkin's book Classic Planes - Celebrating New Zealand's Rich Aviation Heritage.

Contrary to my earlier post, the Electra is being recreated as ZK-AFD2.

The New Zealand Herald has published a video interview with Rob Mackley about his and his team's restoration and it looks magnificent!  The video is at: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle-video/news/video.cfm?c_id=1503081&gal_cid=1503081&gallery_id=192562

If 2018 is going to be the Year of the Next Mosquito, then 2019 is going to be the Year of the Electra!
