Hawkes Bay Agplanes and others

A journey through the airfields of Hawkes Bay in the weekend revealed lots of interest including a number of agplanes, starting with Fu24-950 ZK-CRY parked up at Hastings now without its SuperAir titles

Two of the Aerospread Cresco fleet were seen with ZK-LTE at Hastings

And at Dannevirke ZK-LTX

At Waipukurau was PAC750XL ZK-XLR which shares its time between here and Gore

Also at Waipukurau was Napier owned Cessna A185F ZK-DWW which in a former life was a Mt Cook skiplane ZK-MCU

Out and about at Hastings was Alpi Pioneer 200 ZK-PCB owned by Peter Steers.   Peter is involved with a Trust that is facilitating some local College students building a Vans RV12 in his hangar at Hastings airfield.


  1. Two questions - what's CRY doing in HB? How long has DWW been up and running?

  2. XLR is Twizel based, not Gore. I was told it wouldn't go north for a couple more months, but maybe it went up because of the southern weather
