Recent tail dragger sightings.

 After some time out of the air, hangared at Wanaka, the North American NA88 Harvard III* ZK-ENE (c/n 88-14678) is coming together nicely with Southair at Taieri. It appears to have a replacement port wing. It is currently listed with Mainland Air Services (2010) Ltd, and is for sale if you are interested.
In at Southair at Taieri was Cessna 152 ZK-FGC (c/n 15282207) from Mainland Air - in temporary tail drag mode - with a leaking nose wheel oleo being attended to.
Tucked in among the trees at Alexandra a few days back (23-02-2013) was the Cessna A185E ZK-CYA (c/n 185-1023). It is listed with CYA Holdings of Queenstown. This was initially registered in NZ on 08-06-1966 as ZK-COK but was damaged in 1967 and rebuilt to become ZK-CYA on 10-09-1968.
In Mainlands hangar at Momona was the Cessna 152 T/D ZK-ETD (c/n 15284195) 
Outside the Otago Aeo Club hangar was their Rans S-6ES Coyote II ZK-OAC2 (c/n 02991305). This one began life as ZK-WAL2 on 23-11-1991 and then became ZK-JNA5 between 20-04-2012 and 03-05-2012.
