Pauanui 28 February

Amongst a gathering of 6 Yak 52s at Pauanui airfield today for aerobatics practise was one not often seen, ZK-ZAY up from New Plymouth.   This was originally imported from Lithuania in 1995 initially aspiring to become ZK-YAQ,  before settling on ZAY.

Also visiting was the 1965 model Cessna 182H ZK-DCD in a new paint scheme to that blogged previously.   This has been with an Otorohanga owner since 2021.



  1. Haven’t seen DCD since it was used in Dannevirke by Cloud 9 Skydiving many years ago. Good to see it still around.

  2. Is there any chance of a blogpost on the history of Cessna 182H ZK-DCD??
