As a reminder to readers of the blog, I have been posting this series of early Colour Photos of Druine Turbulents of New Zealand by Don Noble as a prelude to the 50th Anniversary AACA/SAANZ flyin at Hastings from the 6th to the 9th of March. This is the final update post on our early Turbulents.
I originally posted on these Turbulents at: www.nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/2010/05/druine-turbulents-of-new-zealand-6.html
I have gone back and added more complete dates and most of these photos to my original post.
ZK-CQC at Ardmore, 21/5/66.
ZK-CQC at Dairy Flat, North Shore, 31/12/67.
ZK-CVX at Nelson, 9/9/72.
ZK-CVX at Omaka, 27/1/73.
ZK-CVX at Omaka, 9/11/73.
ZK-CVX at Ardmore, 4/3/78.
ZK-CVX at Masterton, 16/3/91.
ZK-CWI at Masterton, 22/1/77.
To finalise the update of my series on Druine Turbulents of New Zealand, I have gone back and entered more complete dates in the later posts that already had colour photos. These posts are at: www.nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/2010/05/druine-turbulents-of-new-zealand-7.html covering ZK-CFX, ZK-CFY, ZK-CGK and ZK-CJD.
and at: www.nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/2010/05/druine-turbulents-of-new-zealand-8-and.html covering ZK-CWE and ZK-JGX.
And finally, to wrap things up (to the end of February 2014), another Turbulent ZK-WPT (c/n 001) was registered to Allan Brizell of Westport on 19/10/10 as a Class 1 microlight. Allan contributed a post on ZK-WPT on this blog at :www.nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/2010/11/one-more-turbulent.html
However, since Allan's post I have not heard anything more about ZK-WPT - can anyone update this?
