nice blog you've got there! I found after a bit of googling, that you happened to have a write up on this Cessna 172 (http://nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/2015/01/another-straight-tail-172.html) and mentioned here (http://nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/2009/07/aopa-omarama-bound-traffic-through-nzrt.html)
I actually had the pleasure of being a passenger in this bird the other day! I thought you might be interested in the video I filmed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9t6r2NGHHPY. Just flew from the Waikato down to Wellington.
