Continuing the life of Bryan

 This Piper PA-25-235 Pawnee ZK-CNJ (c/n 25-3865)
 is the one Bryan did his training in; flying for Chris Pask in 1972.
That is Will Slack in this photo; not sure where.
Then Bryan went on to the Cessna A188B Agwagon C ZK-DPP (c/n 188-01524) in late 1975.
 Photo taken at Bridge Pa Aerodrome.
Then on to Cessna A188B ZK-DPW (c/n 188-01515). Photo taken at Kotemaori on the Napier Wairoa road.

This is Ponui Station strip towards the coast from Kotemaori.

The Ponui Station strip once again with quite a dog leg in it.

This is the strip at Putorino. The same one show in an earlier posting with Fletcher ZK-EMK sowing up the strip.
 I think of all the aircraft I flew, the Agwagon I enjoyed most, even though it was a bit under powered.
All three of these aircraft eventually ended up in Australia.


  1. i was bryans loader driver when the pawnees were sold and we got the new ag wagons. bryan was a good all round bloke and fun to work with.

  2. Photo of ZK-DPP. I delivered her brand new to Bridge Pa on the 20th September 1975, about the time this photo was taken I guess and took Pawnee ZK-CIE back to Ardmore same day.
