Four from NZRT this afternoon 25-02-2012
Below is the Piper PA-18-150 ZK-BNX (c/n 18-5453) of the BNX Syndicate. This Cub did ten years with Central Aviation in the Ag role before going to private interests in 1967. It later joined the Otago Gliding Club in February of 1981 but was sold in 1983 when the Club went to a motorised glider.
Rangiora Sailplanes took it up and then passed it on to the BNX Syndicate on 20-12-2000. In the back window is a for sale sign.
3 (c/n 2336) was imported from Germany by Eddie Schenk of Temuka in 2008. He sold it to James Lilley of Ashburton mid August of 2010.
2 (c/n 08031519-1203ES) is clattering back to the Club hangar.
