Caravan to Timaru

 Cessna C208B Grand Caravan N280RL continued on to reach Timaru about lunch time yesterday for its NZ certification with AVTEK. Pic above taken at Christchurch shows "the other side" with its big exhaust, the all white cowling and the four bladed prop. So it this a recent conversion (without the fuselage cheat line extending to the nose ?

It has got a few days of certification ahead of it and then off to start para ops at the Jardines strip just south of Queenstown. Apparently it’ll take the rego ZK-NZO in the next few days.
