Final Strikemaster Line Up at Ardmore

Strikemaster Ltd's two BAC-167 Strikemaster Mk 88s NZ6370/ZK-STR (c/n 310) and NZ6362/ZK-NTY (c/n 302) arrived back at Ardmore on Monday 23 January from the Classics of the Sky airshow at Tauranga.  They conducted several local flights as a farewell to those who had been associated with them.

They then lined up outside the Pioneer Aero hangar with fellow ex RNZAF Strikemaster NZ6372/ZK-BAC2 (c/n 342) of RNZAF Strikemaster Ltd, in what will almost certainly be the last group photo of three Strikemasters in New Zealand.  NZ6372/ZK-BAC will continue to fly here, and we also have Brian Hall's ex Saudi Air Force Strikemaster Mk 80A ZK-VPR which is based in Christchurch.

ZK-STR and ZK-NTY were cancelled from the New Zealand civil register today, 25/1/17.

Thanks very much to Colin Hunter for the photo.
