My week of it.

 Follows are a few photos I have taken during the last week or so.

Parked beside the Canterbury Aero Club hangar on 31-12-2020 was the Sunair Ltd's Piper PA-23-250 Aztec ZK-PIX c/n 27-4738.

At Rangiora on the 29th the Sam Fry Laser 230 ZK-LZR (c/n 31) was caught on the roll.

The remaining photos were taken at Rangiora yesterday 4-1-2021.
Cirrus SR22 ZK-LDY c/n 895 dropping in from Paraparaumu for fuel.

New to the register on 3-12-2020 was the ICP Savannah S ZK-SOX (c/n 18-02-54-0593) of the SOX Syndicate awaiting its CAA inspection.

Also in for fuel was the Beech 35-C33A ZK-MEC (c/n CE-167) of David Morrow which is based on a nearby airfield.

The Fletcher FU24-954 ZK-EUA (c/n 282) of David Evans has been on the tie downs for over a month now. The 'EXPERIMENTAL' is a recent addition.


  1. For what reason has the word EXPERIMENTAL been added?

    1. My question too! Maybe the turbine-style extra fuel tanks? I fully expect someone to point to a prior example with such an installation, however!

  2. A few fletchers had the extra tanks. From memory, the Iraq ones did.

  3. The rumours going around is it’s about to have equipment added to enable it to function as a drone before being sent to Australia.
