Edge ZK-ZAI gone. Australian gain.

Zivko Aeronautics Edge 540 ZK-ZAI c/n 0019 was cancelled from the ZK register on 28-10-08 as exported and was noted at Hoxton Park airfield to the west of Sydney being certified to join the Aussie register. This it did on 20-11-2008 as VH-AAI for Mark McNicol of Beaconsfield, NSW.
This I0-540, 350hp, powered aircraft joined the US register as N78L in May of 1998 and was cancelled at the end of July for it to become ZK-ZAI on 25-09-1998 for the Hawker Trust of Auckland.

This is at least the fourth allocation of theVH-AAI registration. The first was a DH82A which went to the RAAF in 1940. The second use was on the DHC-2 Beaver that came to NZ to become ZK-CMV, mainly for Air Contracts from 1965 until it was exported to Canada in 1970. Third issue was to a Cessna 421B.
