Question time # 94

Something different for this QT.
This time we have a picture of the complete aircraft but with its registration and most of the background blobbed out. All you have to do is to tell me the registration of this 172.
Shouldn't be too hard with only about 260 to choose from !


  1. Cessna 172P Skyhawk II ZK-EWD c/n 17275009 was imported new by Dalhoff and King Aviation of Ardmore and came on the register on 25-08-1981 for delivery to the D&K Flying School.
    Following a period with Motor Holdings Air Services from 1982 - 1985 it moved to the Southland Aero Club. In August of 1991 it joined the Napier Aero Club and then to Flywrite at Feilding in February 1996. It was registered to Air Charter Manawatu in November 1998.
    On 25-10-2007 it crashed into a river bed near Omaka (I believe) after clipping a fence during an overshoot following an attempt at a downwind landing.
    It was cancelled from the register on 18-06-2008.

  2. photo was taken on 10 feb 06 drs and ewd were owned by air manawatu both were near identical in there paint scheme

  3. Definitely ZK-DRS. I doubt the photo was taken in 2006. Probably much more rececent, like 2010.
