Catch for the day was the Jabiru J400 now registered as ZK-ZMA (c/n 114).
Below is what NZ Aviation News Magazine had to say about it when it hit the register on 15-05-12.
"Between August 2003 and January 2004 Brent Christiansen of Bright East, Victoria, Australia built a Jabiru J400 with a Jabiru 3300 engine and registered it as VH-ZMX on 20-10-2003. It was sold to Alan Warren of Resebery, Northern Territory on 08-054-2010. Alan has recently imported the aircraft into NZ and it has been registered here as ZK-ZMA."
It is currently undergoing its NZ certification at Rangiora.
