Rangiora pie run Friday 07-02-2020

Rangiora on Friday 07-02-2020.
A stranger parked up was the Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee Challenger ZK-DGO (c/n 28-7305220) of Hawera Piper Ltd of Hawera.
This spent its first fifteen years with the Waikato Aero Club followed by twenty two years with Scherer Farms Ltd of Putaruru.
A new Rangiora resident is this Alpi Aviation Pioneer 300 (Karamea) Hawk ZK-RJV (c/n 296) now with Kevin Dore and being ex Geoff Rogers of Wanaka.
Kevin also has the Alpi Aviation Pioneer 200 Hawk ZK-KPD.
Cessna 182D T/D ZK-MJP (c/n 18253552) of Malcolm J and Morgan J Price of Rangiora was converted to taildragger mode in Australia in mid-1998 and ferried into Ardmore back on 18-01-2001.
The Rans S-6ES Coyote II ZK-JOR (c/n WAS0893530) began as a tail wheeler with the Canterbury Recreational Aircraft Club Inc in October 2006. 
Just over a year later it had a bit of a whoopsie and came back on line with nose gear.
The Club sold it to Don Bulmer in September 2016 after they had purchased their second Tecnam P92 Echo ZK-RGB2 in August 2026.
It has recently changed hands to Duncan Woolley of Christchurch and is seen here with the new owner being checked out.
