Polikarpov 'Red 9"

Twenety24 Ltd at Wanaka has re-assembled the Polikarpov I-16 'Red 9' (c/n 2421319) for the upcoming Warbirds Over Wanaka at Easter.
This aircraft was exported from NZ in early 2009 and went to a German collector and become D-EPRN but is better known to us as ZK-JIN.

 Photo above from CMM shows it at Twenty24 Ltd prior to its first start on 01-03-2020.
