Waitangi Weekend #1: Light visitors

With today being Waitangi Day [and so a public holiday] and also the first day of games for the Wellington round of the Rugby Sevens, it turned out to be a busy day. There were more than the usual number of light aircraft visitors. Some of these aircraft are featured below.

ZK-EOX is an aircraft that I have previously flown. This Cessna 172N is registered to Ardmore Flying School, and it is the aircraft that I used for my first post-PPL cross country, from Ardmore [Auckland] to Wanganui and back on 1 March 2000. The trip was memorable for the cruddy weather :-(

ZK-EWP is a Cessna 172RG registered to Eagle Flight Training, also based at Ardmore Aerodrome. ZK-CKF is a Mooney M20C with by far the roughest paint I have every seen in an aircraft - let's hope the inside of it is better! It is registered to a Christchurch address.

ZK-ETU is registered to Nelson Aero Club and is a Cessna C172P. Finally, ZK-NPK is a Cessna 152 registered to New Plymouth Aero Club.
