                                              Here's ZK-ATM whilst owned by Airspread Ltd reposing in front ot the New Plymouth
                                              Aero Club club house in 1951.    It went to the Stratford Aero Club of Woodbourne
                                              after its stint in the RNZAF as NZ1455. Airspread Ltd of Tauranga purchased it on 22 June
                                              1951, and converted it to a topdresser named "Mighty Atom".    In 1959 it was fitted with
                                              the canopy from ZK-ATB during a rebuild.  After several private and agricultural owners it
                                              was sold to the Auckland Flying School who named it "Mighty AT'M".  ZK-ATM crashed on
                                              takeoff from Ardmore at 1015 hours on 29 September 1967 while towing an advertising banner.
                                              The aircraft stalled in at fifty feet and overturned on hitting the ground.  Four years later it was
                                              restored to the register under the name of  J. Greville of Auckland.  In 1980 it was exported
                                              back to the UK where it became G-BJLI.   In 1981 it was sold to G. Grocott of Zurich
                                              becoming HB-UPM   I am indebted to Ken Tiller for the shot of it below in its all red finish.
                                              It is currently registered to Captain J.Schott of Winkel, Switzerland.   .
