New 172 sightings at Timaru

Two first sightings for me at Timaru today.
ZK-SID Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP , c/n 9523 , caught outside its immaculate hangar at Timaru.
This was registered as ZK-SID on 24-04-2008 to SID McAuley.
It was previously ZK-JPT with the Wakatipu Aero Club (Air Wakatipu) from 24-12-2003.

Also noted by me for the first time was the Cessna 172 Skyhawk ZK-NFJ2 , c/n 68021 , listed with Target Products 1978 Ltd of Washdyke.
This is a rebuild of ZK-SBJ which is a 1976 model; imported into NZ by Rob Leach for S B Jones of Mossburn and registered on 31-01-1979. About eight more operaters are listed before its accident at Lake Sumner on 31-10-1998 when it failed to get airborne from a wet strip.
I believe it was a Avtek rebuild at Timaru.
