Visit to Omaka: Omaka aircraft

Here are a few of the aircraft that I spotted at Omaka. There were quite a few others that I didn't get to photograph, but such is life. What you'll notice from all of the photographs is the complete lack of cloud. On the other hand, it was quite hot [26 deg celsius, perhaps higher where we were], so the sunscreen was applied quite liberally. What a fantastic day!

- ZK-VNE is a Cessna 182Q, registered to Southshore Marine Holdings in Christchurch.
- ZK-JCI is a Cessna 172N, and registered to what looks to be a family trust with an Australian address. It doesn't look like it has moved for a while either...
- ZK-PJB is a Cessna U206G, registered to Te Kouka Limited of a Dannevirke address.
- ZK-POR is a Porterfield 35-70 [a new type for me], registered to a Spring Creek address [where ever that is...]. It may have a new owner by now as it was to be auctioned today.
- ZK-PAM is a Cessna 172K, registered to Marlborough Aero Club.
- ZK-WNR is a Tecnam P2002 Sierra, also registered to Marlborough Aero Club.
- ZK-TZT is a Gippsland GA8, registered to Izard Pacific Aviation Ltd of Springhill [north of Auckland]. This aircraft used to be part of the Sounds Air fleet and was used as part payment for a new Cessna Caravan - what it is still doing down here, I do not know.
- ZK-??? is a Nanchang of an unknown registration.

ZK-VNE and ZK-JCI are both long time Omaka residents despite their foreign ownership.

ZK-POR and Nanchang 02 were both on the block at the auction today. Cant help with the Nanchang rego sorry.

Spring Creek is a small town about 8km north of Blenheim on SH1 to Picton

More on TZT shortly on my blog

You'd know where Spring Creek was if you didn't fly everywhere! :-)
ZK-TZT was noted at Wellington on Monday last (anniversary day).

ZK-ARJ - yeah, you're probably right there !


As an update, it appears as though ZK-TZT may still be being used by Sounds Air at the moment.

Cessna 182P ZK-FOG is also owned by Te Kouka Limited - also based out of dannevirke. FOG is out on the weekends mainly and sometimes during the week.
