Waipukurau today 27-05-2012

Nick F reports from a very breezy Waipukurau today.
Above we have two views of the De Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth ZK-BEF (c/n 83323) being put away in the back of the hangar. This has been with the Central Hawkes Bay Aero Club (Inc) since March of 1993.
Two shots of the Cessna A152 Aerobat ZK-ETJ (c/n 152-0968). This has been with the CHB Aero Club since arriving in NZ in mid 1981.
Below we have the Cessna 172P Skyhawk 11 ZK-LGE (c/n 172P-74969). This was imported by John Shivas in march 1985 for Lance G Elliott (hence the registration of LGE) of Auckland. It was on line with the North Shore Aero Club and was sold in October 2003 to Christine Donald and later re-listed to Melness Farm Ltd of Dannevirke on 09-10-2008.
Below is the 150hp Cessna 150G ZK-DAL. It was converted to 150hp by ANZ and first flew on 06-04-1970. By 03-11-1978 it was with the Waipukurau Gliding Club until difficult time saw it move to private ownership with Keith Cammock of Dannevirke on 30-06-2009. Looks like it still has a tow hook and still has the gliding insignia on its fin.
