                                             No, this is not a contemporary shot of a civilian Cessna T-50 masquerading in 'warbird' paint
                                             as a UC-78 'Bamboo Bomber' but is, in fact, the real thing.  This is how ZK-ART looked in
                                             1948 when it was acquired by the New Zealand Civil Aviation Department.  It, along with sister
                                             ship ZK-ARS went to Aircraft Service Co of Auckland in 1950.  Both it and -ARS were scrap-
                                             ped at Mangere in 1950.   -ART is seen below after being officially stricken from the register.
