New King Air


Placed on the register last month was Beechcraft B300 King Air ZK-APL. Registered to Apollo Air Ltd, the company is a subsidiary company of Apollo Projects Group Ltd, a leading design and construction company, with more than 60 project and support staff across Aotearoa. The company regularly works with major national companies and organisations, including Fonterra, Ngai Tahu, Goodman Fielder, George Western Foods, and Lion Co. as well as private owner-operated businesses, sports organisations, local councils and government agencies.

A big thanks to Terry Hodges for these pictures of Beechcraft B300 King Air ZK-APL taken at Nelson on 22 June 2022

The original ZK-APL was a de Havilland Tiger Moth owned by Jack Gould of Paraparaumu. He founded his own air freight company which will be the subject of my historical airline profile in July. Sadly he was killed and the aircraft destroyed at Paraparaumu on Christmas Eve, 1947
