Canterbury Aero Club's new Cessna 172's

Matt Hayes has provided a couple of nice photographs of the Canterbury Aero Club's recently acquired Cessna 172 Skyhawk SP's
Cessna 172R ZK-JNE3 (c/n 1720899) was listed to the Club on 29 March 2019 having begun its NZ career as ZK-JLY with Flightline Aviation Ltd on 13 June 2000. 
Massey University School of Aviation at Palmerston North took it on from 4 December of 2000 until moving on to Premi-Air Aviation Ltd of Auckland from 14 July 2003. It was quickly on sold to JLY Ltd of Auckland and then to CTC Aviation Training (NZ) Ltd of Hamilton from 6 March 2009.
It was transferred to the Nelson Aviation College Ltd at Motueka on 16 January 2012.
They re-registered it as ZK-NAD4 on 24 January 2012.
It was re-registered once again on 05-03-2019 to ZK-JNE prior to its move to Christchurch.
The photo above by Matt shows it in the Clubs Northwest Arch scheme on the hard at Lake Haupiri / Gloriavale on 19 September 2019.
Below is my  take of it at Christchurch on 30th of September.
