Todays Rangiora pie run. With a Christchurch first stop over.

                        On a typical Christchurch autumnal day sits the C17A Globemaster III 08-8202.

Over at the Canterbury Aero Club was the Piper PA-28-181 Archer II ZK-EIP c/n 28-7990065.
This joined the Club in February of 1979 and remained there until sold to EIP Ltd of Christchurch in November 2014.
 If I recall correctly, it received this new colour scheme late in 2020.

The Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk ZK-JHO c/n 38-82A0121 is - as you can see from its c/n - is a 1982 build which went new to the Republic of Singapore Flying Club as 9V-BNR.
It came to NZ to become ZK-JHO from 06-06-1997 and was with the South Canterbury Aero Club from late 1998 to November 2020 when it went up to Christchurch to the Canterbury Aero Club - with two Alpha 2160's ZK-VCA and ZK-VCF going from the Canterbury Club down to the South Canterbury Club.

Eurocopter C 120 B ZK-HPM3 c/n 1312 came to NZ as ZS-RRJ2 and was listed here on 17-12-2007 to John Shivas as Wairaki Holdings Ltd of Kaiapoi as ZK-IFR2.
It went to South Pacific Helicopters (2016) Ltd at Kaikoura in February 2017 until moving to Christchurch Helicopters Ltd in October 2022.
I has since had a major refurbishment and was re-registered as ZK-HPM5 on 01-08-2023.

Finally to Rangiora for lunch and a photo of the 'Orange Roughy'.
The sweet running Titan Tornado II ZK-LOT was out and about today.
It has been with Rodger Ward since first registered on 03-04-2007.
