After NZ certification it was registered here as ZK-EXE on the 17th of May to Motor Holdings (Aviation) Ltd at Ardmore and went on their flight line.
Above we look down on it from the control tower at Invercargill on 28-02-1984.
The damaged aircraft was taken to Drake Aviation Ltd at Christchurch International Airport.

F-ODUF was basically built on the Cessna production line in Wichita, Kansas with their c/n of 76589 and allocated the US registration of N9608L but this was not taken up.
The airframe was sent to France for completion on the Reims/Cessna line using their c/n F17202246.
It was listed with Cercle Aeronautique de Tahiti on the 4th September 1986.
All these came together and I believe first flew on 22nd June 1989.
Photo above shows the 'new' ZK-EXE outside the Drake Flying School facility on 30-06-1989 a week after its first flight following rebuild.
On 18th May 2020 the ANZ Flying Club (now Rangiora based) re-registered their Cessna 172RG Cutlass II ZK-NAC2 as ZK-NBC2 and this is currently under heavy maintenance at Rangiora.
The ZK-NAC registration was then re-issued to ZK-EXE on the same date making it ZK-NAC3.
Photo below show it as ZK-NAC3 refueling at Rangiora on 14-06-2020.
