Some belated Ashburton shots

The SAA fly in at Ashburton over the weekend of February 4-5 & 6 was an aircraft spotters picnic; with over 100 aircraft on the field. Below are just four of them.
De Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth ZK-CDU , c/n 3581 is an ex RAF and British civil aircraft that came to NZ as ZK-BAW. It was rebuilt by Charles Liddell and first flew on 14-05-1964 as ZK-CDU. It was delivered to the Ashburton Aviation Museum Society Inc from the Upton Family Trust on 08-02-2002.  Earlier fuselage registration markings are still visible on the side of the fuselage.
Another local is this Denny Kitfox IV ZK-CGT2 , c/n  ADU147 . This was an import from the US by Graham and Cheryl Taylor of Wanaka in May of 1997. Currently owned by Bob Yates.
The Europa XS ZK-CHV2 , c/n 456 , is the Bill Sisley aircraft.
Taylor JT-1 Monoplane ZK-CRS , c/n AACA/44/1 , was a Clarence Healey built project which first flew on 04-02-1973. It had a major rebuild in the mid 1990's and is currently owned by David Grove-Hills of Auckland.

  1. I have just been scanning some old photos. If the person Annonymous who back on the 7th September 2009 wanted photos of the Avro 594 Avian 11A ZK-AAN , still wants photos I have one. ( probably taken in 1937 ) MY email address is on my blog. Cheers Ali.
