Another export.

Pacific Aerospace 750XL ZK-XLG , c/n , 122 began as ZK-JAD/2 on 21-06-2005 listed with Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd, Hamilton. It was re-registered as ZK-XLG on 24-11-06, still with the manufacturers. On 11-01-2007 title moved to Kairanga Aviation Ltd.
Pic shows it at is base at Kairanga on 11-02-2007.
It departed Hamilton for Kerikeri on 09-08-2008, then on to Norfolk & Lord Howe Islands and Archerfield on the 10th. NZ reg cancelled on 11th.
The following day it became VH-NZJ, still listed with Kairanga Aviation Ltd at Palmerston North but operated by Skydive Cairns Pty Ltd of North Cairns, Queensland.
Has anyone seen it lately - Does it still have blanked out windows ?


  1. My understanding is that there were/are a few problems with the PAC 750XL as a topdresser, and thus ZK-XLG's departure for more productive ventures.

  2. I fly VH-NZJ in Cairns and yes, it has windows now! YAY!

  3. Thanks for that Anon.
    Any chance of flicking over a .JPG image at some stage to bluebus@windowslive.com and I can put it up on the blog ?


  4. This XL is now at Taupo as ZK-SDT, the new 'Pinky'.
