Auster J5 ZK-BQL/NZ1701 Flies to its New Home

The immaculately restored Auster J5 ZK-BQL, wearing its RNZAF identity NZ1701, flew from its re-birthplace of Malibu Park near Nelson to its new home at Waipukurau last Thursday 23 June.

The Auster outside the Central Hawkes Bay Aero Club hangar at Waipukurau.  This makes several historic aircraft based at Waipukurau including Ron Day's Piper J2 ZK-AGD and Ross McDonald's Porterfield 35-70 ZK-POR.

Thanks very much for the photo Ron.
