I could not resist dropping into Rangiora today - still rather breezy, as indeed it has been all week.
The only action was these three resonably local Cessna singles.
Above is Cessna 172P ZK-SGW , c/n 74407 , listed to Gordon Whale on 30-07-2008. Not often seen (by me) it is based out to the WSW of Rangiora.
The 1953 model Cessna 180 ZK-MUZ , c/n 30612 , dropped in for fuel before departing for its West Melton base. It joined our register on 25-11-1994 for Murray Trowbridge. Interestingly this started life as ZK-BEG with Rural Aviation in December 1953 before delivery to Airspread at Tauranga and then a move to Australia to become VH-SSQ in February 1963 followed by VH-CDW from October of 1965.
