Diverted to Ardmore Due Fog

Tuesday is my day off and my intention to spend some time at Auckland International was thwarted so instead I went to Ardmore and spent a couple of hours enjoying the sunshine and activity. The following is the more interesting stuff I photographed...


The award for the most classic colour scheme has to go to Piper Pa24-250 Commanche ZK-BAZ that was busy in the circuit. Photo : Taken by S Lowe at Ardmore on 24 May 2011
Once an "airliner"... Cessna 172N Skyhawk ZK-EOX used to run the Motueka-Takaka newspaper service with passengers flown as room was available... the service appeared in the Air New Zealand timetable... http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.com/2010/06/air-nz-announce-departure-of-flight.html. Photo : Taken by S Lowe at Ardmore on 24 May 2011

While the award for the most unfortunate registration has to go to Ardmore Flying School's Cessna 172R ZK-TAX. Photo : Taken by S Lowe at Ardmore on 24 May 2011
And the one I was looking for... A desperation shot of Golden Bay Air's new Piper Pa34 Seneca ZK-ZAG as it gets ever closer to being ready for service... I can see I am going to need to get a ladder to get photos of it with the titles visible. Photo : Taken by S Lowe at Ardmore on 24 May 2011

  1. The Golden Bay Seneca certainly looks good in its paint scheme. Cannot wait to see the aircraft complete.
