Saturday lunchtime 09-01-2021 at Christchurch

A bit of a peekaboo at the Canterbury Aero Club yesterday (Sat 09-01-2021) picked up the following.
Beechcraft B24R Sierra 200 ZK-DVD (c/n MC-292) was on the tie downs near the Club. It has  been with us since October of 1974 and with its latest owner Aviation Claims Ltd of Cromwell since October last year.

I am still trying to get a decent photo of this Airbus MBB BK117 D-2 ZK-IGI (c/n 20223).

On its trolley at the GCH Aviation Ltd's facility.
First time that I have noticed that the Piper PA-28-161 Warrior II ZK-LJD (c/n 2842308) wears full NZ registration marks in red. Its only been here since late 2008.

The Europac XP LTD's Cessna 182T Skylane ZK-PJC (c/n 18281476) arriving in from Wanaka. It returned to Wanaka later in the afternoon.


  1. Helicopter at GCH (ZK-IGI) is an Airbus H145 Dave. Cheers.

  2. My designation is the manufacturers designation whilst yours is the commercial name.
    Bit like the old 269 and the 300 and the Hughes 369 and Hughes 500.
