Tauranga this afternoon 28-11-2016

Grayson Ottaway has earned his pay packet for the day by snapping these three Cessna's at Tauranga this afternoon.
 Cessna 172A ZK-CKX is c/n 47376 and has a history longer than the space available here.
It started its NZ career as ZK-BWM in mid March of 1960.
 It didn't last long as it was damaged on a strip landing on 30-09-1960. 
It was rebuilt and re-registered as ZK-CBJ on 11-10-1961. 
After at least three more accidents it was again rebuilt and came out as ZK-CKX on 08-09-1965.
Now some 14 owners later it was listed to Tony Johnston of Otorohanga in February last year.

Lurking in the background is the Cessna 172N ZK-WFT (c/n 67712) which was listed with CMC Investments of Pokeno on 16-04-2011.
Above we see the Cessna 210G ZK-DCA2 (c/n 58895) currently with Ryan Lees of Thames.
Bluebus did a bit on this one earlier HERE
