The Schempp-Hirth Janus CM self launching motor glider ZK-GVQ (c/n 21) of the Whangarei District Gliding Club (Inc) departs Dargaville in ideal conditions for a run along the West Coast.
ZK-GVQ came onto the register on 21-11-1985 with C W F Hamilton and Co Ltd of Christchurch and eventually was listed to Jon Hamilton of Christchurch on 03-03-1998.
Rob Garlick of Wellington purchased it in February 2010 at which time it had about 1700 flying hours.
It was taken over by the Whangarei Club in April 2013.
