I was pleased to be able to see a couple of Crescos that were new to me on my trip down to Wellington and back.
At Waipukurau the all pink Cresco ZK-TPW
(c/n 034) arrived back for fuel. It is registered to Rural Air Work Ltd of Otane.
Someone on the blog has wondered what the registration letters TPW
stand for. I reckon it is for T
ratt and W
hitney. And as you can see on the current blog header of another Cresco ZK- PWT (c/n 010), I reckon the registration letters PWT
are for P
ratt and W
urbine. Both of these Crescos have been re-registered (ZK-TPW from ZK-JOH (and VH-MOS and ZK-SDT before that), and ZK-PWT from ZK-TMN). I think they were both re-registered by Griffin Ag Air.
And as an aside, I saw ZK-PWT topdressing near Mangatainoka on my was South through the Wairarapa.
Meanwhile, at Feilding on my way back North was the newly registered Cresco ZK-PGE
(c/n 016) for Super Air. This has recently returned from Australia where it was VH-PGE for the Superair Australia, and it has retained their colour scheme. Prrior to that it was ZK-PNX2
. I understand that it is going to be based at Wanganui.
