I am told by Rob Mears that that this is the ex-Ross Jowitt second Corsair project, based on an unknown centre section recovered from blackberry bushes which he exported to the USA in 2002. Rob says, "This project includes parts from at least five different sources across NZ, all of which of course originated from Rukuhia." I suspected it might be but it has moved location since the last time I heard about it.
There is also the late model Corsair (four bladed prop) was given to the RNZAF as payment for some film that the A4s flew in? They swapped it for the P40 at Wigram as if wasn't the model the RNZAF flew.
She is the one painted in Honduran markings and she had a wheels up landing some time back, unusual choice of music in the clip below?
