ZK-BJB at work.

Gary Eady has sent in these great sots of ZK-BJB at work.

"My father-in-law the late Max McEwan flew ZK-BJB for Rural between August of 1958 and August of 1959. 
According to his logbook, he flew it for around 800 hours during that period while based at Bridge Pa Hastings".

I believe Max started with Rural about February 1956, did some time with Aerial Project and then went back to Rural Aviation again. He was seriously injured at Hastings by the propeller of ZK-BVX on 10-02-1962 but went on to become Rural Aviations operations manager.
