CMM is still wandering around in the deep South.
Here are four pics from his recent Gore visit.
|Above is the Phoenix Aviation Ltd's Pacific Aerospace 750XL ZK-PNX3 (c/n 131).|
If you cast your mind back you will recall that this was originally listed as ZK-JNH2 before becoming ZS-AIL and A2-POM and returning to NZ as ZK-ASA2 with Kiwi Air Ltd at Gisborne in August of 2017.
It joined Phoenix in June of 2018 and was re-registered to ZK-PNX3 on 24-08-2018.
ZK-EMG (c/n 258) was the first New Zealand Aerospace Industries Ltd's Fletcher FU24-954 and was listed to NZAI Ltd at Hamilton on 21-11-1978 - first flying there on 15-12-1978.
It was converted to a Walter M601D turbine and flew as such on 08-03-2000.
Note the dual wheel main undercarriage.
Now something different !
The rebuild of the Yeoman YA-1 Cropmaster 260CR Series II ZK-CTX (c/n 120) is making slow progress at Gore by Craig Dowden.
Special thanks to Craig for access to his fascinating project.
