A busy afternoon at NZRT

A stranger in town was this Piper PA18 Super Cub ZK-BTU (c/n 18-6233) which joined the Airline Flying Club (Inc) on 18-05-2011. It spent most of its previous life with the HB & EC Aero Club.
It was parked in the unfinished hangar with the Cessna 180 ZK-JMH from Haast.
The CRAC Rans S-6ES Coyote 11 ZK-JOL2 (c/n 08031519-1203ES) was out bashing the circuit.
Resting in the sun briefly to allow the Thruster ZK-FHK out of the hangar, was the Sigma-4 ZK-JRC2 (c/n 09) belonging to Harry Devonish.
Alpi Pioneer 200 ZK-LPN (c/n  NZ2010) resting outside "The Landing Spot". This is the one from Middle Rock Station in the Rakaia Gorge.
Also pushed out to allow others to escape was the Sam Fry Laser 230 ZK-LZR (c/n 3).
Vans RV-4 ZK-SIM2 (c/n 2816) was also thrashing the circuit.
And can't you just hear it ?  North American NA78 Harvard 3* ZK-XSA (c/n 78-6647) did a couple of circuits before blatting off to some less crowded airspace.
