Wanaka kitsets !

A month ago (08-10-08) I passed through Wanaka and these two Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 Rata's lay in a dismantled state on the hangar floor.

Nearest is White 9 (ZK-JIN) and beyond is Red 34 (ZK-JIO). On the left of the top pic and right on the lower pic is the Polikarpov I-153 Chiaka Red 10 (ZK-JJB).

Anybody any idea whats happening here ?

And a pic of Red 10 (ZK-JJC) on 08-10-08.

A year earlier (11-10-07) Red 34 was in much the same state - but note in the background the I-153 White 75 (ZK-JKM) with wings crated alongside. This is still on our register listed to Parc Aeronautic De Catalunya c/- Carlos Martini, Alpine Fighter Collection.

Have a look at the site below to see John Lanham flying it in Spain on Oct 2nd.
