Aircraft at North Shore That Have Seen Better Days
Every time I visit North Shore Airfield these two aircraft are there (obviously!).
Piper PA 23-150D Apache ZK-BUA is in fact still on the register, owned by the Apache Syndicate of North Shore. It was first registered in New Zealand in November 1957 and was operated for many years by the Civil Aviation Division of the Ministry of Transport. It must have many stories to tell - anyone want to post them?
And Cessna 172K ZK-WGS will never feel the wind under its wings again. It was first registered in New Zealand in August 1998 and was cancelled in May 2009.
