Downside of Diesel Seen at Dargaville

Late on Saturday afternoon at Dargaville, a passing diesel powered Cessna 172 on a cross country exercise dropped in for a touch and go.

ZK-TAS2 of the Ardmore Flying School climbing out, showing one of the downsides of running diesel fuel!


  1. Are you sure it is a diesel? It looks like steam coming out of the front....

  2. They also leave a fairly distinctive black smoke trail behind; caused me a bit of concern the first time I saw one!
