Oh pipped at the post. Saw it and thought L-39. And two different answers.... Ohh... But I have got to go with QW. Definately ZK-VLM.
Mit - you are the closest with one fact erroneous.QW & Anonymous : you are both about 250km out."Blue" bus
Then it must be VH-KEE's tip tanks? (ex ZK-KEE)
No. Sorry but it is not ZK-KEE.
ZK-TSC In nelson (about the middle of the other two)
Ha - Sorry Mit.But it is not ZK-TSC either.
Oh Bugger! how about ZK-VLK?
No Mit.Aint that either.Have a check look at the details of your reply of 27-07-2010 at 6.29pm
So is it an L-39? Theres three on the register at the moment and neither seems to be the answer.So is a machine that was previously registered in NZ?
Yes gents.It is a currently NZ registered L-39.
Evening JK.No it is not ZK-WLM. (Mit has already suggest that).
Mornin JKNo.It isn't ZK-VLK either.So that narrows the field down somewhat. (also previously suggested by Mit),
Haha what a Muppet! That would be ZK-TCS! to be fair VLM not an L-39 either rather VLK!
Well said Mit - & who am I to argue with your self diagnosis.I suspected finger trouble all along TCS - TSC easy to do.So well done finally.It is indeed the Aero L-39 ZK-TCS.I will post pics etc later tis evening when I get home from the factory.Would you care to flick me your snail mail address for receipt of said chocky email@example.com
