Avid Heavy Hauler UL ZK-WEN.

Jabiru powered Avid Heavy Hauler UL ZK-WEN (c/n 1226D) as seen at Rangiora today (24-11-2009) having a transponder fitted.

Built by Warren Edward Newland and using his initials it became ZK-WEN on 12-02-1997.

It was sold on to Howard B Jenkin on 03-12-2002 and Warren went on to the Alpi Pioneer ZK-WLD from 29-11-2005. I believe Warren operated a Micro B22 Bantam between 1987 & 1988.

ZK-WEN changed hands again on 26-07-2005 to Peter Karl of Ohaupo. Now Peter has had a fair share of aircraft over the years including :- Delore Skytrike ZK-EZY 1982-1999: Micro B22 Bantam ZK-FXG 1990-2000: Aerochute Dual ZK-JHD 2000-2005: Avid Flyer STOL ZK-SPY 2000- 2006: Titan Tornado ZK-TRT2 2006-2008: Avid Flyer Speedwing ZK-MMP 2006-2009: Eipper Quicksilver MXL 11 ZK-MWB from 2007: Jabiru UL-T ZK-CJP from 2009 and Micro B22 Bantam ZK-FWN from 2009.

ZK-WEN moved on to Geoff I Royds of Ashburton on 10-10-2005. Geoff has also operated Auster J1B ZK-AZU 1970-1974: Cessna 180 ZK-BLL 1974-1980: Cessna A188 ZK-CSE 1979-1981: and Cessna A188B ZK-DPW 1980-1989.
Now how many aircraft have I missed that have been operated by these respective owners ??
