Back in 2015 Blue Bus and I were exploring a few sheds in the backblocks of Canterbury, as you do, when we sighted a yellow Piper Cub. It carried the lettering AND.

Nice to see that just last month, three years later, this J-3 Cub has now been registered as ZK-AND/2. It was previously N35846,

ZK-AND/1 was a UK-built Tiger Moth that had seen RNZAF service as NZ675 and was registered to the West Coast United AC of Hokitika in December 1946. It crashed on the Franz Josef Glacier 23Apr50 when caught in a down draft at low level.

Seen here at Rongotai in August 1947.
