Just a couple of clicks away from Hamilton Airport is the Mystery Creek facility where the Douglas DC-3 ZK-AZL is housed.
Even with my charm and good looks - this was as close as I was permitted to go without a site induction - the deck just beyond the reception area.
Over at the Airfield was the Air Tractor AT-502B ZK-MAE c/n 502B-3091.
First flown in the States as N2358P for delivery to Australia where it became VH-FZQ with Field Air at Ballarat on 04-08-2017.
It was ferried from Ballarat - reaching Hamilton on 26-03-2018 and became ZK-MAE with Super Air at Hamilton on 15-05-2018.
The Stoddard-Hamilton SH-3R Glasiar III ZK-MKP2 c/n 3191 has been listed with BOP Marine Life Trust from 03-04-2015.
