The Nanchang is back and looking good!

The syndicate-owned Nanchang CJ6, ZK-MAO, is back on line at the Wellington Aero Club, after some time off for a repaint at JEM Aviation at Omaka. In addition to the paint job, the opportunity was taken to do some general maintenance and it has come out looking great!

Here are a few pictures of it outside the Aero Club hanger prior to some flights with a bunch of very keen owners. A couple of points to note:

1. The aircraft has an approved paint scheme, so the registration does not need to be displayed in the usual manner - "MAO" is painted in tiny letters next to the front cockpit window.
2. All of the detail is now painted on, instead of being stuck on. The result looks great and it should last well also.
