Quiet day at NZRT

Caught three of the locals out to play this afternoon. Above is ZK-CLT2 (C/n 200) the Rans S-10 Sakota of Craig Thomas. A project started in 2006, hitting the register on 04-03-08. This brings back memories of my circuit bashing days at Wellington when the original ZK-CLT had the right of way (size does have a certain amount of right). It being a Bristol Freighter.
Taxiing past with the help of its O-320 engine is this tidy little Cessna 150A ZK-BYM c/n 59079. This one came onto our register in November of 1960. For the last ten years it has been with the ZK-BYM Taildragger Syndicate of Rangiora.
Another long time local at Rangiora is this Piper PA18A-150 Super Cub , ZK-BNX, C/n 18-5453. It received its CofA on 18-04-1957. This started work with Central Aviation followed by stints with several private owners until joining Rangiora Sailplanes Ltd in October 1983. It went to the BNX Syndicate in February 2001.

  1. Size still confers a certain level of priority at Wellington... :-)
