From the 70's and 80's.

Four photos from Graeme Stratton
 The Piper PA-18A-150 super Cub ZK-BPA (c/n 18-6175) at Centenial Park Taupo in 1972 whilst with Joe Keeley (Midland Recovery Ltd). 
ZK-BPA is still with us - having been with Blair Hoult of Knights Point Air Ltd since 2011 - now yellow overall.
 Over at Bridge Pa in 1974 or 1975 was the Cessna 185D ZK-CHS (1850793) during its time with Taupo Flying School and Air Services.
More on ZK-CHS HERE.
 Taken at Wanaka we see the Hiller UH-12E ZK-HDM (c/n2107) whilst it was with the Mead's at Dingleburn Station. (late 1980's ?)
Sold in 1994 it eventually succumbed to a heavy landing at Wanstead in 2001.
And near the Rangitikei River in the early 1980 the Hughes 369D ZK-HPW (c/n 870205D) of South West Helicopters Ltd with Pete Masters in command.
It was cancelled in October in 1982 following roll over damage. I believe this is the airframe at the Ferrymead Museum.
