More from Rangitata Island.

Bargeld01 also got into Rangitata Island today (26-01-2012). Here are five shots from a selection he offered.
First view is on final for grass vector 30 on the Russell Brodie strip at Rangitata Island. Hangars and house on the right among the tress, with the "Moth Manor" just on the left of the grass vector.
I make no apologies for showing the Cessna 180A ZK-BUQ of Skydiving Kiwis again.
Rangitati Island is the "home" of the Rans in NZ, with East Canterbury Aviation being the NZ agents.
Above is the Rans S-10 Sakota ZK-ECA2 (c/n 0393157) built up by the Company in 1994 and then owned by four private owners before rejoining East Canterbury Aviation on 20-05-2006.
Somewhat similar looking - is the Rans S-9 Chaos ZK-KLI (c/n 0593123) initially with M Brown of Whitianga from June of 1994, before moving to Hasting in 1995. It came south to Owen Marsden of Geraldine in December of 2001 and is now listed to the Geraldine Syndicate.
Above is the Russell Brodie Eipper Quicksilver MX 11 ZK-MXK (c/n MAANZ/296). This is a real grass roots flyer, fast approaching thirty years old.


  1. You can never have enough photos of Cessna 180's

  2. Especially BUQ, the more the better !
