A trip to North Shore today saw Jersey Seipel polishing his Wild Thing ZK-DTT and he was happy to stop for a chat and pose for a photo. In a nice touch Jersey didn't just remove the D-M from its previous registration but he has added new sloping registration letters. Jersey explained that the Wild Thing was modelled on the Murphy Rebel however it is much lighter than the Rebel and is registered in New Zealand as a Class 2 microlight with a MAUW of 544 kg. By comparason the Rebel is an Amateur Built aircraft and has a MAUW of 750 Kg. ZK-DTT has a 6 cylinder Jabiru 3300 motor and its first flight in New Zealand was at Parakai on 11/11/10.
