One & the same. ZK-JKZ now ZK-JHU

Above we have a photo taken at Rangiora on 21-10-2007 of Airborne Windsports Edge 582 ZK-JKZ with a listed c/n of "W2 135". It was first registered to Ian Clark of Auckland on 15-12-1999, then to G & M Gross at Whangarei on 02-02-2001. By 30-04-2004 it was with Liam Naden initially of Paihia and later of North Canterbury. By October 2006 it had accumulated about 400 h our flying time. Its registration is shown as being revoked on 23-05-2007.
I have a report that it was damaged when a trailer which it was on overturned.
Above shows it today at Rangiora now listed as ZK-JHU to Doug Anderson and with its correct c/n of 582-411B. The initial c/n used was in fact its the serial number of its Wizzard 11 wing. Originally it had a Brolga prop but now sports a locally produced Brent Thompson propeller which still requires a little tweeking.
The reason for having the new registration on the fuselage pod is that the wing fabric has had a treatment which prevents the transfers from adhering.
