Omaka # 11

Some visitors to Omaka over the Easter weekend.
Just arrived in from up Gisborne way is the De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver ZK-BVA2 (c/n 245) of Farmers Air Ltd. 
Also just pulling in was the Jason Deer Cessna 185 ZK-CAK (c/n 185-0017). 
The Cessna 182R ZK-CNR (c/n 18268212) has been with Palms on George Ltd of Pukekohe since July of 2013.
This originally plied our skies as ZK-JFI followed by a spell as ZK-SAR2 before becoming ZK-CNR on 06-04-2011.
Built for the Indian Government back in 1949 this De Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk became ZK-CVM2 (c/n 340) on 03-04-2003. 
It was listed to Mark Woodhouse of Richmond in May 2017.
This dew covered Aero Engine Services Airtourer Super 150 I have not seen for many a year.
It started life as the Victa Airtourer 100 ZK-CGQ in 1964.
Following a technical problem at New Plymouth in November of 1969 it went to AESL for re-manufacture and became ZK-DBD (c/n A551) on 25-02-1970.
