Same Aircraft But Different at 2016 SAANZ Flyin, Hastings

These aircraft have been seen at previous SAANZ national flyins, but they are different now.

Bruce Belfield's Canadian Home Rotors Safari ZK-HXJ2 suffered an accident on 10/2/15 (see for what it looked like previously).  Bruce has now rebuilt it incorporating many improvements after 015 years of experience of building Baby Belle/Safari helicopters as the New Zealand agent.

The helicopter is now painted in an iridescent yellow colour with The Joker artwork.

Vans RV 7A ZK-RFX has appeared in a new colour scheme following a rebuild after being damaged in a groundloop at Gordonton on 28/3/14.  This aircraft was originally built by Rex Newman of Blenheim as ZK-REX4 and was first registered as such on 15/7/04.  It was re-registered ZK-RFX on 26/5/09 to allow Rex to register his latest RV 7A as ZK-REX5.  You can see how it used to look at

Gavin Grimmer had his Skylux ZK-SLX on the display line.  This aircraft was displayed as a fuselage on wheels at the 2014 SAANZ flyin at Hastings.  It has now flown.

And to finish, a photo of Gavin's two aircraft, the Skylux and his Miranda ZK-JGR, painted in the same colours.
