Pipistrel Virus ZK-TCB at Tauranga

The Hairy Mole Rat captured the recently registered Pipistrel Virus SW ZK-TCB2 outside Solo Wings recently.

ZK-TCB2 (c/n 923 SWN 100iS), was registered to the new Pipistrel agents, Pipistrel NZ Ltd of Whakatane on 10/10/18.  It is our first Virus model.

I have previously posted about our Pipistrel Sinus's at https://nzcivair.blogspot.com/2018/06/pipistrel-aircraft-of-new-zealand-1.html and the Virus is essentially a Sinus with a shorter wing of 10.71 metres span.

TCB is famous as "Taking Care of Business" that I saw in Elvis Presley's Convair 880 and Lockheed Jetstar at Gracelands in Memphis, TN.  They had TCB engraved on their gold seat belt buckles!
