Rangiora arrivals this day 17-05-2018

 Two items of interest interfered with my potato top pie scoffing at lunch time today at Rangiora.
Above is the locally based Avid Heavy Hauler UL ZK-OST (c/n 1543-E) which has been in the care of Max Earnshaw since last September.
 Earlier posts on OST can be seen Here.
 An unusual radio call sign and the sound of a couple of TIO-540's had me out of the CRAC Clubhouse pdq to capture the Ted Smith 601B Aerostar ZK-JOS (c/n 61-0361-116) as listed with Coventry Motors Ltd of Auckland.

  1. my Aerostar engines are turbo normalised IO 540's. They come from Lycoming as IO 540's and the Aeroplane gets turbo charged by the manufacturer.

    An earlier post suggested it may be a Piper which it isn't. It is a Ted Smith Aerostar.
