Very Busy at CTC Aviation Hamilton 15-3-2017

Continuing on my way back to Auckland from Taumarunui, I had a quick look at Hamilton Airport and although it was quite quiet at around 5 pm, the CTC Aviation operation seemed to be very busy.and I took these photos as the various aircraft taxied past or were tied down, over a 15 minute period.  Most of these aircraft have not been posted on the blog previously.

Diamond DA 20 ZK-CSH3 (C0462).  CTC have 14 DA-C1's 20s registered to them including the block ZK-CSA2 to ZK-CSI3.

Diamond DA 20 ZK-SFF2.

Diamond DA 20 ZK-CTC2.  I think that this would have been one of CTCs first aircraft, being first registered on 24/9/04.

Cessna 172S ZK-ZDM

Diamond DA 20 ZK-CSB2.

There were a lot of other CTC aircraft parked at the end of the day including more than four DA 42 Diesel Twinstars.  CTC have 8 registered to them.
