Flight to D'Urville Island - post 3

While D'Urville was a nice quiet place to visit, two other Cessna 172 aircraft arrived. The first was Cessna 172N, ZK-EHH, registered to an Otaki address.

The second aircraft was a bit surprising. It's an "original" Cessna 172 with a tail-dragger conversion! ZK-BSU looked very nice and is the first time I have seen a C172 tail-dragger. Note also the original "straight tail", and the main gear which is moved just forward of the struts, instead of well behind as in the usual tricycle undercarriage configuration.
