Omaka Cessna 180/185 Fly In

A selection of the attendees at the excellent NZ Cessna 180/185 Club fly-in at Omaka this weekend are as follows,  starting with the A185F ZK-CDM2 which was imported from Vanuatu in 2019.  Initially all white it has now been painted in a smart new scheme and has been with its current Blenheim owner since earlier this year.

The 2nd usage of the registation ZK-DPF on a Cessna 185, the current example is an A185E model imported from the US in 2018 by its Christchurch owner, being registered after refurbishment in 2021. 

One of 3 Cessna 180's imported from Uruguay back in 2006 180C ZK-KRD has taken longer to get back in the air, being registered to its Otorohanga owner in 2021.   The other  ex Uruguay 180's are ZK-MDL and ZK-WGT.

The former Mt Cook skiplane A185F ZK-MCR was originally imported new in 1985 and has been completely refurbished for its current Mercer based owner.

And a 180 that despite being around since 1959 has somehow missed being blogged here is ZK-BMS which was ex USA used import and has been with its current Queenstown owner since 2000.
