Thanks Mike for posting the extremely long named B & F Technik Vertri FK 9 Mk IV ZK-RDW at Ardmore today. I wonder if the Vertri should be Vertriebs but this was too long for the CAA register forms?
It occurred to me that this is not the only B & F Technik Vertri aircraft in New Zealand, and to round the picture off here is the other one. ZK-RFD is a B & F Technik Vertri FK 14B, owned by Polaris Air Ltd of Mt Maunganui (as is ZK-RDW). Both were first registered in New Zealand on 3 February 2009. Thanks to Blue Bus for the photo which was taken at the 2009 SAANZ fly in at Ashburton.
B & F Technik Vertriebs GMBH is a German company based in Speyer that manufactures the FK series of sport aircraft that are popular in Germany. The range also includes a FK 12 biplane.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all readers of the NZ Civair blog a blessed Christmas and I look forward to a New Year of interesting posts.
