Jersey Seipel unwrapped his Wild Thing ZK-DTT from its hangar and flew off to Matamata.
A real oldie picketed outside Stan Smith's hangar was Moraine Saulnier 880B Rallye ZK-CKK. This was first registered in February 1965 and was cancelled in August 2000. It was restored and re-registered on 1/2/07 and is now owned by R J Burr and M R Jeffrey of North Shore.
And looking sparkling with uplighting from the white concrete was Cessna A152 Aerobat taildragger ZK-MDO. It is owned by MDR Aviation of North Shore.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all readers of the blog a blessed Christmas and a wonderful plane spotting New Year.
