ZK-BFV   Piper PA-18A-135         (c/n  18-4135)


                                                When import restrictions eased in the mid-1950s in New Zealand, most topdressing concerns
                                                upgraded their geriatic Tiger Moth fleets with more modern types.  The Piper Super Cub was
                                                an excellent workhorse and had been modified by the manufacturer specifically for agricultural
                                                operations..  The minuscule registration on the rudder (in vogue at the time) is difficult to decipher
                                                (actually impossible in this image).  This particular Cub is still flying, mounted on skis, and is now
                                                registered to Gavin Wills, the well known Mount Cook Alpine Guide.
