A Sad Ending at Whangarei

Across the airfield from where I was at Hangar 10 at Whangarei there were the sad remains of an aircraft that will probably not be there much longer as it is destined to become a practice for the Airport Fire Service:

I reckon it is the remains of Alpi Pioneer ZK-CIR which I understand ditched in the Whangarei Harbour and was cancelled from the register on 22/6/18.

Here it is in happier times at Whangarei on 2/3/15.


  1. What are the other fuses behind the remains of CIR, looks like there are two or three others, Cessna 152 and a Piper PA28!!!
