|This magnificent aircraft owned and restored by Rob Mackley was outside today for what I believe is the first time since the restoration began.|
|It carries the name Kuaka and Union Airways markings and the registration ZK-AFD on one side|
|On the other it wears the markings of Linea Aerea Nacional of Chile with which it served as CC-226 / CC-LCN / CC-CLEA. The aircrafts msn is 1145|
Great to see this aircraft out in the sun. Thanks for sharing WayneReplyDelete
She looks utterly stunning. I didn't realise she had both colour schemes, it looks fantastic! What a great way to honour the airframe's history. Bravo Rob and everyone involved - gorgeous!ReplyDelete
In early Sept. 1991 our family holidayed in NSW. Camden came up on the agenda. Picture the scene, I was standing by the car when I heard some revving up. Expecting to see two Harvards take off, I was pleasantly surprised to see Electra VH-UZO come into view and lifting off in front of me and then perform some circuits. It had only gone back in the air a few days previously after restoration.If that was an indication, be ready for plenty of noise from the new ZK-AFD.ReplyDelete
I've just shared this with a couple of Chilean websites.
