The Cessna U206G Stationair N7391N c/n U20603648 ferried into NZ on 01-03-1977 and was dealt with by Dalhoff and King Aviation Ltd at Ardmore to become ZK-EJH on 26-04-1977 and went on line with the Dalhoff and King Flying School from the 9th of the following month.
I seem to recall that it struck a fence at Te Araroa towards the end of September of 1977.
It is seen below at Ardmore on 04-09-1979 wearing the "Rex" logo on its fin.It was sold to Jim Small of Taihoa in the Hakataramea Valley in November of 1981 replacing the Auster J5P Super Autocar ZK-BLZ.
And above we see it on the McCaw gliding strip in the Hakataramea Valley in January of 1982.
(And no - that is not Richie).
Then we see it at Oamaru as race number 26 on an unknown date.
Above at West Melton on 30-03-1989.
