Three from NZAR 23-12-2014

Magnaman captured these three aircraft at Ardmore Yesterday (23-12-2014).
 Above we see the Cessna 152 ZK-FCO (c/n 152841580).
One of the left overs from Helipro Aviation Training Ltd.
Seen here outside the Heliflite facility.
It is of 1980 vintage and reached NZ  towards the end of 1982 and has had a fist full of operators since.
 A very interesting arrival  is this Tecnam P2006T - Airborne Technologies Multi Mission Aircraft.
First registered to BAe Systems Australia Ltd of Salisbury, South Australia as VH-OBZ on 21-05-2012. I wonder what they used it for ?
On 17-11-2014 VH-OBZ ferried from Tamworth to Bankstown; overnighted, and then flew on to Lord Howe Island and Auckland the following day.
Its Australian registration was cancelled on 05-12-2014 for it to become ZK-OBZ with Ardmore Aviation Services Ltd of Hong Kong.
This 2006 Tecnam P2002 Sierra ZK-RTM (c/n 0169) is for sale at DTI, Ardmore.
With just the one owner it has TTAF of 530 hours.
It was registered to Lake Forest Enterprises Ltd of Taupo on 03-04-2006.
The registration of RTM being the initials of the late owner Roy T Marsden.
