Whilst most of this blogs contributors were fluffing about at Omaka with the Mad Bastards Bluebus departed for points south out of NZCH.
First stop was the Canterbury Aero Club where I missed the departing Seneca ZK-DCO which was already containered and sitting on the wharf at Lytteleton awaiting loading for its trip to Sri Lanka to join two of the Clubs old Cherokee's. More on this one later.
I did managed to get this in hangar shot of the Club's 'new' Piper PA-28-161 ZK-MBG (c/n 28-8516026) which is undergoing some maintenance before going on line.
Also just joining the Club recently was the PA-28-161 ZK-MBE which was out earing its keep during my visit.
At the bussling Oamaru I caught the Cessna 180 ZK-BYJ just landing on its return from its efforts at Omaka.
Also at Oamaru the Guimbal Cabri G2 ZK-IIB (c/n 1043) from Highland Helicopters dropped in for a short time.
And Heliventures NZ Ltd's AS 350 B3 ZK-IER (c/n 3708) was also very active.
