Plugging into the southerly on final for 20 at Christchurch this afternoon was the Aerospatiale-Alenia ATR72-212A ZK-MCB3 (c/n 598). It has been with the firm since 16-11-1999.
The earlier ZK-MCB's were a Britten-Norman BN2A-8 Islander - which was used on ski trials on the Tasman Glacier in 1974. It snuck off to New Guinea in mid 1982 and crashed there in mid 1983.
The second ZK-MCB was a Hawker Siddeley HS748 and got a mention at http://nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/search?q=mcb
