Departing Kerikeri today, after an overnight stopover, was the Cessna 172L Skyhawk ZK-DFH (c/n 60092) presumably heading back to Auckland for its current owner Garth Shaw.
It was test flown in the US as N3992Q before delivery to NZ for Rex Aviation and became ZK-DFH on 20-12-1971, first flying here on 10-03-1972 and gaining its CofA on the 14th. On 31-08-1972 it was listed to Simcan Investments and was leased to Airspeed Electrics Ltd of Auckland until being registered to them on 17-09-1985. On 14-04-1992 it was listed to R W Massey of Kaukapakapa and then to Pauanui Ocean Beach Resort on 31-08-1999. Garth Shaw took it on from 31-01-2012. It is a RAM 160hp conversion.
