Airvan ZK-ZTP

 The Gippsland GA-8 Airvan c.n GA8-04-045 was first registered as VH-UAF 2 on 23-12-003 to Arnem Land Communities Airline Pty Ltd of Nhulunbuy, NT who traded under various names. On 12-11-2004 it was re-registered as VH-LHV 2 under the Laynha-Air name, still out of Nhulubuy. Above as seen at Gove, NT on 04-06-2009 from Lachlan Brendan.
Luynha Air ceased operations and the service was I believe taken over by the Missionary Aviation Fellowship.
Ownership of VH-LHV passed to Arnhem Land Communities of Cairns from 09-05-2016
Above as noted at Coolangatta on 21-02-2021 by Ben Long.
The registration VH-LHV was cancelled on 02-06-2021 with the aircraft listed as sold in Vanuatu - but this seem to have fallen through and it was re-listed as VH-LHV on 29-07-2021 with Flying Services Pty Ltd of Lawrence, NSW who ferried it across to NZ.
It arrived in Auckland on 01-10-2021 (above) and moved to Ardmore (below) the same day and has remained  parked up there.
It was captured yeserday evening 25-11-20221 now marked as ZK-ZTP.
