I dropped into Timaru yesterday (03-01-2009) for a potty stop & cuppa tea and found the Aero L-29 Delfin ZK-VAU , c/n 094015 was out to play.
It has been receiving some TLC since its arrival in Timaru and is begining to look a lot smarter, although this work has made the markings harder to read. I noticed (but did not note down) a number on the deflector plate to the starboard engine intake - possibly the c/n ! The "45"below the cockpit has almost been rubbed away.
It is housed in its new hangar which will shortly also hold (Once Wigram closes) the owners Piper PA-31-325 Navajo ZK-NOW2 , c/n 31-7912032.
