A couple of recent ownership changes.

Below we look at a couple of recent ownership changes.
 The Grumman G-44A Widgeon ZK-AVM (c/n 1466) was trucked down to Ardmore on 11-05-2012 for restoration at AvSpecs.
 Ownership changed from Owen Harnish to Warren Denholm on 11-06-2013.
It first arrived in NZ in 1950 for operations in the deep south.
It went offshore in mid 1987 returning in late 1994.

 Cessna 185C ZK-CGH (c/n 185-0751) came new to NZ in 1964 thanks to Rex Aviation (NZ) Ltd.
It initially served with Rural Aviation in the ag role and is seen above at Feilding in 1967.
I do not recognise the sheep so I guess the photo is from the RJD collection.
Some twenty two operators later it moved to Balclutha in 2009. Its latest move sees it join Remote Adventures Ltd at Takaka replacing a similar damaged aircraft.
