Te Anau & Wanaka

At the Te Anau - Manapouri Airport the latest Cessna U206G floatplane for Wings & Water Te Anau, ZK-DRI2, was nearing completion.   This was imported from Australia and registered back on November 30.

The new aircraft's registration is derived from the existing Wings & Water Te Anau Cessna U206C floatplane, ZK-DRH,  seen here on Lake Te Anau.

Up at Wanaka one of Alpine Helicopters' fleet of AS350 not previously blogged is AS350B-2 ZK-HYW3,  previously being one of the many helicopters registered ZK-HOT with the company.  The Airport was otherwise quiet with skydiving aircraft and Air Milford's Caravans stored in various hangars.



  1. ZK-DRI as far as I know; C/n U20604924 built in 1979 reg. N735HQ, in 1991 VH-MQX, in 2020 ZK-DRI.
