The weeks NZCH pick.

No pie run today due to the inclement meteorological conditions.
These two shots below were taken at NZCH on 02-01-2018
 The Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP ZK-JRG (c/n 172S9671) is of 2004 vintage, spending its first five and a half years as N6017G before popping up in Australia as VH-OGY on 10-03-2010. 
It was ferried across that Ditch from Bankstown to Lord Howe and Norfolk Islands and into Auckland of 10-02-2017 and joined the NZ register on 14-02-2017 with the Auckland Aero Club (inc).
This ATR-GIE ATR72-212A (c/n 1304) was first flown at Toulouse on 02-12-2015 using the French test registration of F-WWEJ.
It entered the NZ register as ZK-MVH on 18-12-2015 and ferried into Hamilton on 24-12-2015.
It then flew to Christchurch on 09-01-2016 and flew its first revenue earning flight the following day.


  1. The Cessna "ZK-JRG", or N6017G was a common sight here in the southwestern area of California (KTOA). I guess she was sold... Happy she is still flying.

  2. Hello there Josh. Nice to know we have a Blog reader in california. I don't suppose you have a photo of it as N6017G - to help complete its history.
