From A3- to ZK- - AWP returns

Wayne Grant caught these wonderful photos of Air Chathams' DC-3 ZK-AWP returning home to New Zealand from Tonga yesterday.

All photos taken at Auckland on 22 December 2013

The DC-3 has been operating in Tonga for a number of years on the Tongan register as A3-AWP with Peau Vava'u and Chathams Pacific (see http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2013/04/air-chathams-south-pacific-operations.html)

One wonders what future the DC-3 will have in New Zealand? Certainly the new Air Chathams script suggests that Air Chathams have got plans for this classic queen of the skies!
