Further sightings from our travels on the East Coast of the North Island included the latest addition to Gisborne based Eagle Flight Training fleet, Diamond DA40 ZK-TTC. This was imported from the US in December 2019 and acquired by Eagle this June.
Down at Napier the vintage 1962 MS880B Rallye ZK-BZZ was parked out while its engine was receiving attention. It was purchased by a Waipukurau owner in May 2020.
Also parked up at Napier was the Airscapade DC3 ZK-JGB2 which has been Omaka based for the past 5 years
A late afternoon visit to Hastings before the rain arrived offered the Lowe Corp Hawkes Bay Rescue helicopter, BK117B-2 ZK-HIQ5, which was acquired in 2018 and is based at Hawkes Bay Hospital
And the latest addition to the busy Air Hawkes Bay fleet (May 2020) is Cessna 152 ZK-TOC, previously with NZICPA at Whanganui. It has consequently lost its Silver Fern tail emblem.
