At Timaru on Saturday the 1st Simon Brown caught the Cessna U206F Stationair II ZK-DWV (c/n U20602585) which is now with Kynan Yu of Cromwell
Outside the South Canterbury Aero Club was the Zlin Aviation Savage ZK-LAP (c/n 322) which is a new resident at Timaru with Steve Lyttle who also operates the Alpi Pioneer ZK-SJL.
The Cessna 172N ZK-NFJ (c/n 17268021) joined our register initially as ZK-SBJ in late January of 1979. Following a major re-work it became ZK-NFJ with Target Products 1978 Ltd of Timaru on 14-11-2006. It was used by Simon for this flight to Hanmer and Kaikoura and return to Timaru.
Over the inland Kaikoura Road and the Kahutara River below and with the Kaikoura Peninsula in the distance.
At Kaikoura the Eurocopter EC 130 B4 ZK-HBE4 (c/n 3541) was caught just lifting off
with the Eurocopter EC 120 B ZK-IFR2 (c/n 1312) not far behind.
Also at Kaikoura was the Beechcraft 35-C33A Debonair ZK-MEC (c/n CE-167) which has just found a new owner in Auckland.
The MEC registration stood for the Morrow Engineering Co Ltd from late July 1987.
