Rangitata Island Christmas fly in #3

Real grass roots aviation !  Eipper Quicksilver MX11 ZK-MXK (c/n MAANZ/296) joined Russell at the Microlight Heritage Collection in 2004.
An interesting row of aeronautical history. In the lower foreground is the "Miss Torque" pedal plane.
Then we have two Skycraft Scouts. The red nosed one is ZK-OWL (c/n 0522/MAANZ114). Behind them with folded wings is the Mignet H.M.16 ZK-FLE2 (c/n HM16/G/1). In the background is the nose section of a De Havilland DH104 Devon. There is much more interesting stuff beyond.
More Rans visitors. Above is the Rans S-7 Courier ZK-ROO2 (c/n 0506430) of Howard Scott from Woodbury. This is real Rans territory with Russell being the Rans agent. There being at least three more under construction in the hangars.
Below is the Rans S-6ES Coyote 11 ZK-SIX (c/n 11051712-ES) of Grant Coldicott from Pleasant Point.
