Vintage Cessna 172 at Wellington

Earlier today an original Cessna 172 visited Wellington. By original, I mean a "Cessna 172", not a 172A, but just plain, original "172".


This aircraft, registration ZK-REV, is registered to a Te Awamutu [Waikato] address.

There are several differences between the very early and later model C172's. A couple of examples are the straight tail, and the two venturi tubes on the right hand side of the fuselage, just in front on the wing.

Anyway, here are the photos.

From 1957 according to the NZ Civair blog:

It sports a nice vintage colour scheme too, or should I say lack-of-colour scheme.

Yeah. I love seeing that these old aircraft are still flying!
