Ownership change & a foreigner in our midst

Captured on my home turf at Rangiora on 04-12-2010 was this Cessna 172N Skyhawk 11 ZK-EJU , c/n 172N-69149 . This was one of the batch imported by Dalhoff and King in 1977 and was delivered to the Fiordland Aero Club that December. Some seven operators later it went to Puketoki Farms Ltd of Pokeno on 16-03-2007 until its recent ownership change on 08-11-2010 to Murray Reed of Tuakau.

The surprise for the day however was this US registered 1966 Cessna 150 N5JP , c/n 65872. I believe it also belongs to Murray Reed and has evidently been in storage in NZ for about ten years.

  2. Interesting to see your piece on Cessna 150G N5JP. According to the US Aircraft Register it is currently registered to Russell S.Ward in Kingman, Mojave. The latest Cert of Registration was issued on 19 Dec 15 and is due to expire on 31 Dec 18.
