Nice shots there Mike.Re ZK-CPD. Your "!" is correct.The on line CAA register doesn't go all the way back to 05-12-1966 when CPD first hit the register for the Wairoa Aero Club. It was delivered to them on 22-04-67. It was listed to Rex Aviation (NZ) Ltd on 10-07-74 before moving to D G Lewis & G W Adamson on 23-09-74. I then have it with South West Helicopters of Taupo from 23-12-1977 followed by Sensor Alarms Ltd of Palmerston North from 20-06-78. The Hawkes Bay Gliding Club had it listed to them on 30-11-81, with whom it remains. I note that it was damaged at Ypuk on 13-12-05. So can I assume that the nice non Champ colour scheme was applied about then ?
