A sunny Sabbath sojourn.

Half time score - Cubs three and Beech's two.
 The Canterbury Aero Club had their Piper PA-18-150 Super Cub  ZK-BNL (c/n 18-5152) on site today for the Club competitions. 

Basking outside its hangar was the Piper PA-18-150 Super Cub ZK-BNX (c/n 5453) of the BNX Syndicate.
 Actully up doing it was the Piper PA-18-95 Super Cub ZK-CXC (c/n 18-6202). 
This one began life as ZK-BTT in early 1958 - had an accident in January of 1963 and came back after rebuild as ZK-CXC in July of 1968.

Then two Beech's.
 The Beech V35B ZK-EDJ (c/n D.9224) is the Keith Neylon Bonanza up from Invercargill. 
This one has been in Country since 1974.
An ex Rangiora local - now a resident at Fernside Fields a few clicks west of Rangiora - is the Beech 35-C33A Debonair ZK-MEC (c/n CE-167) of Morrow Engineering Co Ltd. This came to NZ in late 1986.
