More from Wanaka by CMM

Our roving reporter CMM is still lurking around Wanaka and has provided these photos
Mustang Flights Wanaka Ltd's North American P51D-20NT Mustang IV ZK-SAS  (c/n 111-36299) getting some air following the 'lock down'.
Eurocopter EC 120 B ZK-HXC6 is c/n 1268 spent its earlier years in Italy before hitting Australia in 2017.
It became ZK-HXC with PLC Holdings Trust of Ashburton on 12-08-2019.

Now over at the Museum next to the Airfield CMM found two Airtourers.
Above we have the Victa Airtourer 115 ZK-COW (c/n 166) which was built to an advanced stage in Australia and shipped to NZ for completion first flying here on 05-05-1967.
Gerald Rhodes picked it up in late 1996 and here it is in his museum.
Inside we have the Victa Airtourer 115 ZK-CLF (c/n 121) which I recall from its Wellington Aero Club days - went it only pumped out 100hp on a good day.
Gerald Rhodes took it on from April 1991. 
It is still currently listed on the register.
