Whangarei 26-11-2017

After a long lunch at Dargaville we drove over to Whangarei.  The Whangarei Flying Club was very welcoming with coffee and biscuits and laid back discussion about aircraft and flying.  It is a great place to visit.  Thanks Rusty and Penny.

The next morning (Sunday) there was a committee meeting and most of the aircraft in the hangar were pushed out which was great for photography.  There are quite a few sport aircraft at Whangarei and that I had not seen before, several of which have not been posted on this blog previously:

 Mel Jones's Sisler Gygnet ZK-CYG is for sale - have a look at Trade Me aircraft listings for details.

Andrew McNeal's Avid Flyer Mk IV ZK-DDB2 is now flying again.

ELA Aviacion ELA-07R ZK-VBA w(c/n 04040403712) was having some maintenance work done.  It has been registered to a Maungaturoto owner since 8/9/17   It is ex G-CEEA and has been registered in New Zealand since 29/11/10.

Murray Parkinson's nice Corby Starlet ZK-LDI is undergoing its test flying schedule.

Locally based Dreamcraft Aviation Ltd's Tecnam P2002 Sierra ZK-TST (c/n 008) was busy flying.  It has been around since 28/11/03.

Another Tecnam was P 92 Echo ZK-THA (c.n 785) which now wears a slightly different but very plain colour scheme.  It is registered to a Kaikohe owner and has also been around since 2003 - it was first registered on 19/9/03.

Vans RV 6A ZK-TRV was up from North Shore and stayed only briefly.  It was coming home in a way as it was originally constructed in Whangarei.
