A very welcome sight in the top of the South's sky along with DH83 Fox Moth ZK-APT.  
Both aircraft doing joy rides throughout the afternoon "opening" the celebrations for the next four days
ZK-AKY has featured many time on the blog before.

  1. Dragon ZK-AXI burbled by our place in Whanganui at 1755 last night, apparently they overnighted in Paraparaumu. And I believe Anson ZK-RRA made the hop over from Omaka as well. Keep your eyes and ears open, Nelsonites! Best wishes for great weather.
