ZK-BDU  Cessna 180         (c/n  30566)


                                                    Another hard working Cessna.  This topdresser looks a bit austere without its spinner.
                                                    Note hopper behind pilot.   It was operated by Northern Air Services Ltd of Te Kutiti
                                                    as their "No. 3".    On 2 Mar 1958 the aircraft took off overloaded.  The load jettison
                                                    mechanism failed and the aircraft hit a knoll sustaining damage severe enough to declare it
                                                    a write off.   It was cancelled from the register in 1960.
