Question time for Christmas day

Merry Christmas all.

Herewith a dozen photographs for you to ponder.


QUESTION TIME 
now COMPLETED

All answered to 
my satisfaction

**************************** 

Number 1.

Solved


This one is not particularly civil - but we have had four of this type on 
the register. 
I am looking for the type of the background aircraft - not the blurred 
Flying Kiwi in the foreground !

ZK-CKE2 tells us  it is an Avro Anson Mk1.
Which indeed it is - at the Air Force Museum.


****************************************

Number 2

Partially solved


Oops ! not floating very well at all.
Aircraft type please.
And to help sort out the influx of correct answers -
Tell me where and when ?

Allan has got it with Tiger Moth.
But more details required yet.

Nice try with the details there Allan - but alas not ZK-APM

And no Peter it is not ZK-APX that I am looking for either.
I didn't realise so many Tigers went swimming !

Planecrazy4 has cracked it with the 
Tiger Moth ZK-AJE 
the 'Chocolate Plane' of the Otago Aero Club.
Date 05-06-1952 into the Otago Harbour.



*****************************************

Number 3

Solved


Ignore the NOTICE.
Very knobbly.
What aircraft type would you find this in ?

Allan has identified it as the 
Chrislea Super Ace which is at the
Ashburton Aviation Museum.


*****************************************

Number 4

Solved


We know its a DC-3.
But which one ?

It is indeed the old CAA Cal Flight DC-3 
ZK-AUJ
With a colour swap.
Thank you ZK-CKE2.


***************************************

Number 5

Solved to my satisfaction


Aircraft type please.

Planecrazy4 suggests it is a 
Lockheed C130J Hercules.
I think it is still listed as an LC130H.
With UTC Aerospace Systems NP2000 props.



****************************************

Number 6

Solved


What type would you find this on then ?

This is the leading edge of the Zenair 
CH701 STOL ZK-SLO 
Thanks Anonymous.



****************************************

Number 7

Solved


The nose of what ?

Yes - good spotting there Planecrazy4.
It is the Mil Mi-34C (Hermit) ZK-HUN5.
Ready for delivery a couple of days ago.


****************************************

 Number 8

SOLVED


Winging it.
But the wing of what.
And if you know that then you probably can provide the registration as well ?

We have a correct answer from Planecrazy4
The de Havilland DHC-1 Chipmunk ZK-CPY


****************************************

Number 9

Solved


A nice easy one !
What sort of aircraft is this engine mounted on.
And can you suggest a 'ZK' registration for same ?

Anonymous has picked this as the 
Arnold Gallagher
Special ZK-CZE - which indeed it is.
A considerably modified Cessna 150.



*****************************************

Number 10

Solved


No I'm not kidding you.
What model is this ?
And where would you expect to find this one ?

As bobgod infers it is indeed a peddle car in the Mount Cook 
terminal in 2014



*****************************

Number 11

Solved



Aircraft type please ?

It is the Just SuperSTOL ZK-KAB .
Thanks you ZK-CKE2.


*****************************************

Number 12

Solved


What do you make of this then ?
On what flying machine would you find this ?

ZK-CKE2 has cracked as the 
Martin Jet Pack.


***************************************

No number.

Solved


A grotty photo from the olde shoe box.
Just the type and model would be sufficient thanks !

It is indeed the Helio Courier H-250 ZK-TCE
Planecrazy4 scores another point.

The unadulterated long shot of ZK-TCE landing at NZRT recently.

********************************************

SCORE
         Anonymous  2.0 
               Planecrazy4 score 4.5        
          bobgod   1.0
ZK-CKE4.0
Allan    1.5 

My problem now is how do 
I split up the chocolate fish prize ?




Safe and happy flying.

  12. Does anybody have any more information on the Cessna 150 ZK-CZE with the Rotec engine?

  13. Gidday there QW.
    I would think it is still some time away from flying.
    Paper work not yet as heavy as the aircraft.
    It's an early 150 ex US register (I have the US rego noted somewhere) Has new constant cord wings.
