Fairchild F 24C-8-C ZK-ABE at Omaka

Seen outside at Omaka recently is this magnificent restoration of a Fairchild F.24C-8-C.

Not yet on the New Zealand register but obviously to become ZK-ABE3, the meticulous restoration of this aircraft has been progressing at Omaka over the last several years.  It was originally manufactured in the US in 1934 and was imported into the country as a basket case by Trevor and Nicki Collins of Blenheim.  Nice!
