Rangiora is home to several Zenair CH 701s with very large tyres:
Stewart Bufton's ZK-LSB.
The reason for the large tyres is for landing on riverbeds.
Alex Mason's ZK-AMC2.
Buzz Harvey's ZK-ZUB.
and Chris Anderson's ZK-TIA.
There were also two other CH 701s in hangars on the airfield: ZK-SLO and ZK-NVY.
