Ohakea civilian aircraft # 3 from Aaron M

Here we have a better view of the AutoGgyro Europe Calidus Fern ZK-MZM.
Previously serving as NZ3009 with the RNZAF is this Curtiss P40E Kittyhawk ZK-RMH (c/n 19669) now listed to the Air Tight Trust.
Brendon Deere (ITL Aviation Ltd) had his Supermarine Spitfire MkIX ZK-SPI on show.
Woops ! got that wrong. Should read
Doug Brooker (Lasbrook Holdings) also had his other aircraft on show. The Supermarine Spitfire MkIX ZK-WDQ (c/n CBAF 5487).
Showing off the sponsors markings is the BAC-167 Strikemaster Mk88 ZK-STR (c/n 310). This served with the RNZAF as NZ6370 between November 1972 and its sale by tender in 1993. It then went off to Australia until being retrieved by Brent Nichols to become ZK-STR on 11-04-2011.
