SAANZ Flyin at Ashburton Revisited - Another Jodel Bebe Flyby

I have previously posted a flyby of two Jodel D 9 Bebes from the Saturday of the SAANZ Flyin at Ashburton, but the Sunday went one better with a flyby of three of the aircraft.  That is notable as it represents 60% of our currently airworthy Jodel D 9 fleet (of 5 Bebes although 7 are still registered).  I have cast around for a photo of the 3 aircraft flyby and it led me to Bernice Hintz who took the attached photos, exactly 4 weeks ago.

Evan Belworthy in ZK-CVN, Ross Brodie in ZK-CTW and Dave Kenny in ZK-FRK.

And here they are lined up on the ground.

Thanks very much for the photos Bernice.


  1. Great post sir minty!! Nice to see the little Bebe’s getting some attention!
    For the flight that the photo above was taken I was flying CTW, Dad (Russell) flew it to and from the fly-in.
    Cheers, Ross Brode
