ZK-VGS - VH-VGS - ZK-VGS? at Auckland International 22-12-2018

Arriving at Auckland International on 22 December was Vans RV 6 VH-VGS, having flown from Southport, Qeensland via Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island.

This aircraft has a strong New Zealand connection, being built in Auckland by Air NZ Captain Gary Spicer and being registered here on 13/5/99, and it is photo'd above at the 2000 SAANZ flyin at matamata.  Gary retired to Australia and flew ZK-VGS across the Tasman, and its New Zealand registration was cancelled on 25/6/03.  I understand that it might revert to ZK-VGS as the new owner also has the initials GS!

  1. Great article, thanks for sharing this 

    I think the aviation industry is one of the most exciting around. 

    It's constantly evolving and developing as the years go by. 

    Any career in aviation is incredibly fulfilling.
