ZK-BGI   Cessna 180                      (c/n   31018)


                                           Three images of ZK-BGI.  The upper one shows it as delivered from Rural Aviation in original
                                           livery, whilst the second shot (at an air show in Hastings in 1955) illustrates it after it had been
                                           "de-Cessna-ized" by Airwork.  It appears that  ZK-BGI was later used as mount for skydivers
                                           after its topdressing days were done, as per Phillip Treweek's image at:
                                           Finally, (lower image) is a very nice contempory shot of it by Colin Hunter showing it with full
                                           ZK- rego.  Is there now a trend away from the ridiculous "last three' habit in New Zealand?
