Blast from the Past #9

De Havilland 83 Fox Moth ZK-ASP at Matamata, ca. 1957-1960

 ZK-ASP was originally Air Travel (NZ)'s pioneer Fox Moth, ZK-ADI. After seeing RNZAF service during World War II it was added to NZNAC's fleet again for service in South Westland. It is still wearing its NZNAC colour scheme here minus its Māori name Mimiro.
