Another Cessna 180A, ZK-TSM , c/n 32678 , photographed at Dunedin International back on 11-11-2010. A product of 1957 it went to Australia in 1962 and then to PNG in 1985. It was damaged in july 1990 and the damaged airframe went to the UK for a rebuild. It re-appeared in July 1991 as G-BTSM.
Using the last three of these letters it became ZK-TSM on 30-07-2008 to M J & M G Parks of Tapanui.
