ZK-AYV  de Havilland D.H.114 Heron            (c/n  14001)


                                                 ZK-AYV was the first production Heron.  Both my images of it are lousy.   The lower
                                                 one (via the de Havilland Aircraft Co, circa 1952) shows it in NZNAC livery.  The above
                                                 shot was taken after its sale to Gulf Aviation in the late-1950s.  It was later re-registered
                                                 G-APJS.  Unfortunately it crashed into Mount Cifarelli in Italy during its delivery flight in
                                                 February 1958.
