FNQ Yestayear Images - October 1996

Yesteryear Oct 1996


Log shows off to New Zealand so no entries for CNS.  However a couple of items noted of interest in Auckland have connections, one with CNS and the other with Ansett.




Noted at North Shore airfield, Auckland on 6th was Grumman Widgeon ZK-AVM wearing Antique and Vintage Airways titles.  This was operated by Coral Wings of CNS in the early nineties as VH-WET.



On the 7th caught nice and low droning in the early morning over the Remuera suburb of Auckland was this DC-6A C-GHCB (#43) of Conair, Canada on one of many Tussock Moth eradication spray sorties over the Auckland suburbs. It operated out of the RNZAF base at Whenuapai during its short but welcome stay.  This aircraft was once VH-INA of Ansett.
