Other Cessna's thanks to Andy Heap.
 The Cessna 180C ZK-BYJ (c/n 50908) is a product of 1960. It is now with the HKJ Partnership at Oamaru. Probably Hayden Williams doing the work.
No prizes for guessing who it used to fly with !
 Cessna ZK-BCR (c/n 55658) catches many a plane spotter out - It is a tail wheel conversion of a Cessna 175 Skylark - with a different engine and cowling profile. Shaun Gilbertson from Wanaka is the usual driver.
 Cessna A185F ZK-CES2 (c/n 03273) is the Darlington Drilling and Piling Ltd's (Nigel Griffith) Skywagon. It previously flew as ZK-JPM.
 Spot the difference. ZK-DBX (c/n 51872) is a Cessna 180H - still listed with Dairy Air Ltd (Gene Demarco !).

Cessna A185F Skywagon ZK-DPE (c/n 18502419) is from Canterbury Aviation Ltd of Christchurch.
Graeme Prankerd from up between Eltham and Stratford poles forward in his Cessna 180B ZK-EEJ (c/n 50557).
 An older Cessna 180A is ZK-FDO (c/n 50017). Locally based with the Van Asch Grigg Partnership, with Marcus Van Asch and Duncan Grigg sharing flights.
 Stationair II Ltd's Cessna U206G Stationair 6 II ZK-NOC (c/n U20606563) is Phil Pacy's, down from Auckland.
 The 1959 Cessna 180B ZK-RWC (c/n 50543) Was previously ZK-LMW. It was re-registered by Richard Coop of Mahia in June of 2013.
Going about its business was the Soundsair Cessna 208 Caravan ZK-SAN2 (c/n 20800360). It also did its thing - one up.

    It was all Andy's fault. He was Jonny on the spot.
