Has anyone have a history on BNX which is currently based at Rangiora. I know it was a topdresser and did venison, but don't know where or when. Any photos would be great. Thanks
ZK-BNX worked with Central Aviation Ltd., Roxburgh from new in mid-1957 until sold to D N Philpotts, Rangiora 8 Dec 1967. H A Smith, Christchurch was the owner from May 1968 - he might be the venison recovery guy.
I last saw BNX at Omaka on March 7 1975. It was tied down along with a companion which from memory was BKJ - they had been retired from venison and both were in need of major work, which obviously they were lucky enough to get!
I think at the time one or both were owned by the late Baden Gifford?
