Citation Mustang and a Saratoga

It was windy again today and just two aircraft that are worth mentioning.

The first is Cessna 510 Citation Mustang, ZK-LCA. This aircraft is registered to Air Hawkes Bay of a Hastings address. By my count, this is the 4th Citation Mustang currently on the New Zealand register [not sure however if any have arrived and left in the past couple of years].

The second aircraft is a repainted Piper PA32R-301 Saratoga, ZK-ZIG, which is registered to Golden Bay Air [formerly Capital Air] of a Takaka address. I've featured this aircraft several times in the past [check out the label cloud of aircraft regos on the right], but this is the first photo of it in the current paint scheme.

It's amazing how many Mustangs we have here - the story of ZK-MUS is curious - Acernus sold their original ZK-MUS (exported) and got a new one - again registered as ZK-MUS!

Hi Wayne,

I thought there was something like that. Yeah, there are a few of them around now, and they look like a really nice aircraft! Must find a ride one day :-)

I like the new paint scheme on the Golden Bay air Saratoga. Much better than the old paint job.

Does anybody know if ZK-EQS will also be in the same paint scheme as the Saratoga?
