Yo there PD.Non floater or skier.Fixed wing.Factory built 5000 +A goodly number been in NZ although this later model much less common here.Like anything,its easy to find if you know where to look.Now : is that a clue or is that a clue ?
Is it a MD 500 NOTAR at Queenstown?Sir Minty
Bluebus, is it a twin engine? Turboprop? Beech? Cessna? De Havilland? Piper? Mooney? Taildragger? Tricycle? North or south island based? Process of elimination?!
Evening & welcome aboard Sir Minty.It is not a rotary machine and not at Queenstown.PD : Now look here comrade! You are meant to be telling me - NOT asking me.But - Because you ask so nicely, it is from one of the big three from the US of A. With a photo background like that - It has to be in the mainland, but there is one in the Pig Island, but I cannot recall seing this intake on it. I don't know of any twin engine or turbine conversion yet.
Cessna 180/5? Zk-BDRIt maybe Piper PA-32-260 or piper cub/super. also looks like it was taken near queenstown? omarama
