A visit to Rangitata Island on the 18th found the Rans S-7 Courier ZK-SRB (c/n 0904375) of East Canterbury Aviation Ltd in the late afternoon sunshine.
First registered on 11-2-2020 with the registration of SRB being the initials of Struan Ross Brodie.
On Monday the 19th I poked around at Ashburton and found the Piper PA-22-150 Caribbean/Pacer ZK-PCR (c/n 22-6716). Of 1959 vintage it has spent time in The USA, UK and Australia before joining our register on 14-02-2017. Its first visit to NZ all the way from West Australia was in July of 2014 as VH-BRG3.
