The Return of a Beech Staggerwing

Back in 1995 a Beech D 17S Staggerwing was imported into New Zealand and registered ZK-AMU, a suitably period registration that had not been allocated originally having been reserved in the flying boat series of registrations.  It flew in New Zealand until 2009 when it was cancelled from the register and exported to Australia, where it became VH-WEE.  I see that it has not been posted about on the blog, so that is something that we will need to address. 

And when we address its previous history we can add a new chapter!

This is because the aircraft has recently been returned to New Zealand from Australia and re-registered as ZK-AMU (c/n 203) on 18/7/22.  It is photo'd above in a hangar at Wanaka on 22/7/22.  Nice!

Thanks for the photo Steve.
