Rangiora today

A quick visit to Rangiora turned out to be a worthwhile exercise.
The Anderson Pegasus XL Copy ZK-JDX , c/n 2 , about to taxi out with a wave from Brian.
Rebuilt about two years ago it sports a Wizzard 111 wing and a Rotax 447 engine.

Mooney M20C Mk21 ZK-CPP , c/n M20C-3266 , about to line up on "07". Originally a Wellington Aero Club machine from January of 1966. It went to Tom Coleridge (WN AC president if I remember correct) on 27-01-1969; then to Jim Dillon at Bleheim in July of 1977. It has been with John McVicar at Rangiora since September of 1998.

Jon Ludgater was in (and out) in his Vans RV-6 ZK-RVX , c/n 60485 . An impressive well equipped machine that is piloted from the right hand seat (Left hand on throttle and right hand on control column).

Surprise for the day was this Europa ZK-OWN which has not arrived on the register yet.
With a registration like that I wonder who would OWeN it.

Also on site was the Richard Owen Tecnam P92 Echo Super ZK-LTF2 . c/n 1075.
Originally registered to Richard on 22-11-2007 it was listed to U-Fly Ltd of Wanaka from 30-11-2007 until its recent return to Richard (06-12-2009).
