Three Visitors at Ardmore on 26-1-18 and an export on 25-1-18

Smart looking Cessna 172RG ZK-ETG msn 172RG0192 of Control Services Ltd of Te Kowhai doing engine runs.

Cessna 182N ZK-SBB msn 18260630 of GoSkydive New Zealand Ltd of Prebbleton taxing for departure.
Wonder what brings this aircraft north.

Another smart looking aircraft and also from the South Island is Cessna T182T  ZK-ZZR msn T18209013 which is registered to a Hanmer Springs owner.

MBB BO105 CBS-4 ZK-IBO msn S-801 seen in the Oceania Aviation Ltd Ardmore compound on 25-1-18 secured to a pallet and in front of a container. This is listed as being owned by Enora Holdings Ltd of Male in the Seychelles so I'm assuming it is being exported. I t was registered to Oceania Aviation on 17-4-13 and has been at Ardmore ever since I believe. It still wears the livery of it's former operator the Jordanian Police Air Wing.
