Arriving at the 2015 LAA National Rally at Sywell , Northamptonshire

AGM had previously been registered ZK-ADH and it is seen as such in this post http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2015/09/air-travel-nz-at-waiho.html

The NZ Civil Aircraft gives a full history of the aircraft at http://nzcivair.blogspot.co.nz/search?q=ZK-ADh. Here is an extract from that post explaining how it came to be ZK-AGM...

ZK-ADH crashed near Wigram on 7th June 1936 when attempting to land in fog and was damaged beyond repair. The wings, undercarriage and tail were used with a new-build fuselage and it was rebuilt by the de Havilland Technical School, but having a new fuselage was given  a new c/n, the ‘T/S’ standing for Technical School. It was also re-registered ZK-AGM and delivered to Air Travel (NZ) at Hotitika on 10th June 1938, then to New Zealand National Airways named “Matuhi” on 1st December 1947. 

Photos of it in NAC airline service can be found here...
