Sunday at Ardmore

Magnaman got off a few shots today (Sunday 26-11-2017) at Ardmore.
And below a view of her as seen yesterday at Dargaville by Keith Morris.
 Cessna 172E ZK-FNT (c/n 51399) was a product of 1964 and passed quickly through the Malaysian register for delivery to Hong Kong in January of 1965.
It went to Australia in mid 1977 for overhaul before becoming VH-AFW on 10-11-1978 with Pays Air Service at Scone, NSW.
 In mid 1979 it migrated over to Miss M Bailey at Norfolk Island until being withdrawn and cancelled on 14-09-1983.
Next we see it pop up in NZ as ZK-FNT from 16-04-1987 with Ross Jowitt of Auckland.
The Mile high Club of Auckland listed it from 01-05-2002 followed by Murray Hargreaves of Maungaturoto from 31-10-2003.
It hasn't changed much over the years - below we see it at Wanaka on 14-04-2006.
Current owner Nick Gibb of Papakura took it on from 16-06-2016.
Above we have the Ryan ST-3KR ZK-RYN (c/n 2062) of the New Zealand Warbirds Association Incorporated.
 Seen Here just a few weeks ago.
 This was imported by Les Marshall in early 1995. 
It was built for the USAAC and given the military identity of 41-20854. 
By late 1964 it was on the US civil register as NC579S.
Mooney M20C Mark 21 ZK-CPF (c/n M20C-3240) has been mentioned previously HERE
