Parked at Wigram late this morning was the Cessna 182Q Skylane II ZK-FKB2.
This is c/n 182-65618. It came to NZ with an Australian history having been VH-BKB; the initials of its new owner, B K Bland of North Parramatta, NSW from 01-11-1977. In January 1987 it moved to Batchelor in the Northern Territories for Batchelor Aviation, followed by a period with SW Pty Ltd of Casuarina, NT from August of 1999.
It was purchased by Samual Campbell of Te Aroha and registered to him on the Australian register on 01-05-2001. This Australian registration was cancelled on 29-10-2001 for it to become ZK-FKB. It was listed to Cricklewood Deer Ltd of Fairlie on 11-08-2004.
I guess it is in town for the A & P Show at the showground just over the Northeastern corner of the airfied.
