Fletcher ZK-CRY

Taken at Dargaville by Jean210 on 23-11-2012 was this pic of ZK-CRY2 (c/n 268) of Super air.
The history of this one goes back to 1979 when I believe it was laid down to be ZK-EMP but instead became ZK-VAL. It was registered as such on 03-09-1979 to NZAI at Hamilton before being passed to Vanair Ltd of Hastings from 16-11-1979. It crashed at Patoka on 10-06-1987 and was cancelled.
It re-appeared as ZK-UTE for A F B Stephenson (Farmers Air) of Gisborne on 09-06-1999 and wore the name "Andys Ute".
It had a nose gear failure at Kokukohu on 20-11-2001 and was sold to Aerial Work (Mid Northern) Ltd of Maungaturoto from 29-05-2002.
This was re-registered on 02-07-2001 as ZK-CRY2, still with Aerial Work (Mid Northern).
It was transferred to Super Air Ltd on 21-22-2002.
