Mooney M20C Mk21 ZK-CPP , c/n M20C-3266, was registered to the Wellington Aero Club on 25-01-1966 and I beleive it arrived in Auckland on 11-02-1966. Ownership moved over to Tom Coleridge on 27-01-1969 with the aircraft remaining mostly on line with the Club. (Tom - if I remember correctly was the Club president). The above photo was taken at Wellington on 12-06-1969, and the view below was taken about the same time.
Ownership was transferred to Jim M L Dillon of Blenheim on 20-07-1977 and it is seen below outside the old Canterbury Aero Club buildings on 06-04-1988. (Jim currently drives the Aerospool Dynamic ZK-ZOW)
On 21-09-1998 it moved to Rangiora for John McVicar and is seen below in the Pat Scotter hangar on 05-02-2007.
And climbing out from Rangiora on 29-03-2009.
On April 3rd its ownership was changed to Granville C Jones of Gisborne. It replaces Beechcraft V35 Bonanza ZK-DDG c/n D8220 which he has operated since March of 2002 and is now resident at Timaru. Between 1974 and 1984 Granville operated the Mooney M20C ZK-CPF c/n M20C-3240.
The lower two pics were taken at Gisborne on 13-04-2011 and provided by Granville
