Cresco Departure

One of the first Pacific Aerospace Cresco’s built has been exported from New Zealand with the departure from Hamilton on 14 July for Norfolk and Lord Howe Island’s of ZK-PDZ c/n 003.  Initially registered ZK-LTR back on 22 July 1982 to James Aviation, it then moved around agricultural operators until it was re-registered ZK-PDZ in late 2000 and took up the role of parachute dropping based out of the Jardines Strip to the south of Queenstown.   Interestingly, ZK-PDZ was cancelled from the register on the same day it exited the country, an unusual transaction, however this was rectified a little later in the day.  On 15 July the Cresco pushed on to its new home of Armidale via Coolangatta.
