Matt does Greymouth

Some more pics from Matt Hayes.
This time from Greymouth on 24-12-2014
 A real West Coat local is the Cessna 177B Cardinal ZK-DIH (c/n 17701900).
This first flew in NZ on 05-05-1973 and has resided on "The Coast" ever since.
It is currently listed to Ian Whitmore of Kumara.
 ZK-DXE (c/n A1500635) was the first of the 1976 Aerobat models in NZ and served with the Hawera Aero Club followed by the South Otago Aero Club from mid 1985. It has been registered to Markland Engineering and Contracting Ltd at Greymouth sine January of 2008.
The Tom Williams Gardan GY-20 Minicab ZK-EDX (c/n AACA/224) has been based in Greymouth since December of 2011.
Tom operated the Cardinal ZK-DIH for many years.
An out of towner was the Hughes 369D ZK-HXX3 (c/n 300675D) of Helicopter Charter Nelson Ltd.
I'm sure you all remember when it used to scud around as ZK-HSW between 1984 and 2000.
