Bargeldo1 was on the spot today to catch the Aero L-29 ZK-JRF (c/n 892851) on the move today to the threshold of runway 11 at Christchurch for engine tests.
As you can see it carries its old Czech Air Force markings of 2851 "Black 51".
This aircraft was registered to Wairakei Holdings Ltd on 30-10-2007.
Assembly by Heli Maintenance began in mid July of 2011.
I believe the first engine run was on 08-08-2012.
