Cessna U206G, ZK-MCG c/n: U20603551 of Westland Air Charter Ltd Picton. I have searched the web but have not found a picture of this Cessna fitted with floats. In a post in December last year, Blue Bus commented "I notice that late in November the Cessna U206G Stationair ZK-MCG was transferred from Cludden Station to Westland Air Charter Ltd of Picton. So (can) I assume that MCG now wears the "boots" ?"
It continued out to sea and then headed down the coast towards wellington,

Floatplane over Titahi Bay
While walking on the beach yesterday this Cessna appeared! It must have lifted off from the Porirua inlet as it was still quite low.

Is that a rope dangling from the left float?ReplyDelete
It looks like it could be! I got two shots and it's in both but shaped differently - like its blowing aroundReplyDelete
Wouldn't want it to flick up and get caught in the elevators or rudder!ReplyDelete
it was pictured taken off from picton in the late 80s in a nz wings magazine on floats in a rainbow stripey colur scheme.it didnt last long it flipped over landing shortly after and was a land based plane after thatReplyDelete
