Early Colour Photos of Druine Turbulents of New Zealand (6)

As a reminder to readers of the blog, I have been posting this series of early Colour Photos of Druine Turbulents of New Zealand by Don Noble as a prelude to the 50th Anniversary AACA/SAANZ flyin at Hastings from the 6th to the 9th of March.  This is the final update post on our early Turbulents.

I originally posted on these Turbulents at:

I have gone back and added more complete dates and most of these photos to my original post.

ZK-CQC at Dairy Flat, North Shore, 31/12/67.

ZK-CVX at Ardmore, 4/3/78.

ZK-CVX at Masterton, 16/3/91.

To finalise the update of my series on Druine Turbulents of New Zealand, I have gone back and entered more complete dates in the later posts that already had colour photos.  These posts are at: covering ZK-CFX, ZK-CFY, ZK-CGK and ZK-CJD.

and at: covering ZK-CWE and ZK-JGX.

And finally, to wrap things up (to the end of February 2014), another Turbulent ZK-WPT (c/n 001) was registered to Allan Brizell of Westport on 19/10/10 as a Class 1 microlight.  Allan contributed a post on ZK-WPT on this blog at

However, since Allan's post I have not heard anything more about ZK-WPT - can anyone update this?



  2. Who's got Zk Cwi now after the crash on waihi beach

  3. I know the threads been dead for a long time now, But I am now in possession of WPT, I am currently on the hunt for a cowling for it if anyone knows of where I might find one!

  4. Does anyone know where I might be able to find a cowl for my Turbulent? Having a hard time sorting it out, surely someone has the moulds
