King Air ZK-SNM joins Air Wanganui

Air Wanganui, who operate medical transfers and charter flights from Wanganui across NZ, have been operating King Air C90 ZK-MKG alongside Piper PA31T Mojave ZK-WTH.  The King Air ZK-MKG is on a planned period of maintenance while the Mojave is nearing completion of rework following a landing incident in May this year.

To allow for ZK-MKG's removal from service, the operator has leased NZ's second King Air C90 ZK-SNM from nearby Air Manawatu for the duration as from early October. It is seen here arriving at Wellington on a medical transfer flight on 27Oct.

  1. I thought Air Wanganui also had a Cessna 425 ZK-LHL. Is this used by Air Wanganui?

  2. It is, but to be honest I've not noticed LHL flying since July 2009 and then it seemed to make Tauranga its base with trips to Rotorua and down the coast to Hokitika plus into Manapouri.

    Any updates on its status would be welcome.

  3. This is the only picture of LHL in its US registration N51CU.
