Arrived at new home. ZK-JRU

Two photographs taken at Timaru on 22-09-2011. Above, as the Avtech Jabiru ST ZK-JRU (c/n ST0013) taxies away from the fuel pumps after arriving down from Waipukarau and Foxpine with its new owner Murray McMillan.
Above it is parked out in front of the Aviation Museum hangar.
Interestingly it has gone full circle, as it carried out its first flight at Timaru on 18-01-1996 having been registered to, the then Jabiru agents, Agricultural & Related Industry Distributors Ltd of Rakaia two days earlier. It then spent some time with the Mid Canterbury Aero Club at Ashburton, was re-designated as a Avtech Jabiru ST3 on 30-10-1998 and was ultimately sold to John and Jenny Lester of Foxton on 09-08-2002. On 09-09-2004 it went to Richard Anderson at Waipukurau until being acquired by its new owner on 14-09-2011. Murray has been up north for a couple of weeks being check out in his new machine.
