Finally I managed a reasonably uncluttered shot of the Zenith CH701 STOL SP ZK-DBC3 (c/n7-5464) awaiting delivery to James Herlihy of Patearoa.
Now three long lens shots.
Above Arnold poking about and doing his magic inside the Beech V35B Bonanza ZK-EDJ (c/n D-9224).
Meanwhile out in the pasture of long grass and borage the Robinson R22 Beta ZK-IWK2 (c/n 1789) from Way To Go Heliservices Ltd was distracting the grazing Piper PA-28 whilst (below) the Guimbal G2 Cabri ZK-HTQ3 (c/n 1071), as listed to Collective Support Holdings Ltd of Whakatane, was sneaking up from behind.
Back home after a busy few days away, including stops at Tauranga and the Pauanui fly-in, was Kevin Dore and his Alpi Aviation Pioneer 200 Hawk ZK-KPD (c/n 249-09).
Back at Garden City Helicopters base at Christchurch International Airport was see their Kawasaki BK117-B2 ZK-HJC3 (c/n 1061) arriving back - with the State Highway 1 flyover crossing Memorial Drive under construction in the background.
The white curvy thing is part of the "Welcome to Christchurch' archway which will sit over the completed bridge.
Speaking of construction - the Garden City Helicopters new base is making some progress in Grays Road.
