Cessna 172N ZK-JFI2 was imported to New Zealand during 2008 and was first observed at Ardmore fully assembled as N5266J on 09 March of that year. It became ZK-JFI on 16 May 2008 and was registered to AB Milton Trust of Kaeo before transferring to EMT Haulage Ltd of Mt Maunganui later the same year. In January this year ownership was changed to Mr ID Sloan, still residing at Tauranga.
As has been reported in the media, the aircraft was involved in a tragic accident at Arrowtown 17 October claiming the life of its owner and injuring two passengers. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of all involved.http://www.stuff.co.nz/southland-times/news/5803670/Plane-crash-witnesses-tried-to-help
