There was nothing terribly new or exciting for me at Christchurch International today.
Piper PA-28-181 Archer II ZK-FIX (c/n 28-7990559) has been in Country since 26-05-1984 when it flew in from Pago Pago.
Its first NZ owner was G W Prebble of Ashburton from 11-06-1984.
It has had at least eight more owner/operators before joining Barnstormer Enterprises Ltd on 06-09-2011.
The Aerofab Lake 250 Renegade ZK-RFH (c/n 77) of Southlink International Ltd has been on the tie downs near the Aero Club for a few days now.
Sitting forlornly is the ex Southern Warbirds Aero L-29 Delfin ZK-VAU (c/n 094019) which changed owners to Rob Young on 25-02-2016.
Is there a connection with RFH being on site ?
Below -A very long shot of what will soon be history.
The two General Dynamics Allison Convair 440/580 ZK-KFL (c/n 372) and 340/580 ZK-KFH (c/n 42) of Air Freight NZ Ltd.
Soon to be replaced by 737's.
