Pilatus PC12 N81DW passes through Christchurch.

 The Pilatus PC12 N81DW c/n 2090 stopped over briefly at Christchurch International today for custom clearance and a refuel before moving on to Nelson.

It is seen below in its factory temporary registration of HB-FSM at Bouchs in Switzerland on 27-04-2021 having been listed to the Pilatus Flugzeugwerke AG on 16-04-2021.
It then popped up on the US register as N81DW to Pilatus Business Aircraft from 09-06-2021 and by 22-06-2021 it was listed with Dion Weisler of Burlingame, California, before being transferred into the Bank of Utah books the following day where it still remains.  

It was noted in East Australia on 29-06-2021.

Above is the Pilatus January 2023 calendar cover pic showing N81DW 'in the dirt'.

It departed Melbourne direct into Christchurch today and is seen below (in a couple of ho hum photos) on final for runway 02 - and then parked up on the 'Antarctic Apron' for fuel before departing for Nelson.
                Dion Weisler is still the pilot. They previously visited Christchurch in April last year.
