Above is ZK-BQY which has been rebuilt to an amazing standard. It was first registered in February 1957, and crashed at Ardmore in March 1968. It was then rebuilt as ZK-CYU and registered in February 1969, and it was re-registered back as ZK-BQY in April 2004. It is resistered to the ZK-CYU Syndicate of Auckland. ZK-BQY is named Nola in honour of Nola Pickard who was part of the syndicate but was tragically killed along with her husband in a Tiger Moth crash at Taumaranui in October 2003.
And nearby was ZK-BQV which was registered in February 1957. It is owned by WJ and NJ Henwood of Waiuku. I think it is quite amazing that 2 aeroplanes that started off life pretty much together so long ago now live so close to each other again.
Can anyone post their histories?
