Grand Champion from SAANZ Flyin at Ashburton

Following judging on Saturday, the Grand Champion aircraft of the SAANZ 2019 flyin was John and Trish Crawford's Bushby Midget Mustang ZK-MMI.  A spectacular aircraft!

This aircraft was started in the US way back in 1965 but didn't progress past a bare airframe stage until it was purchased by John Crawford around 4 years ago.  It is powered by a Continental O-200 engine.

This is the eighth Midget Mustang to have been registered in New Zealand.  I have posted the history of our other Midget Mustangs at: Midget Mustangs of New Zealand (1) and Midget Mustangs of New Zealand (2).  And a subsequent post on our first Midget Mustang ZK-CWO  HERE

Thanks to Bruce Cooke for the photo.
