I have a request from a Fred Barnes who is preparing an article for Propliner magazine 2022.
He states "I need to know the name of the pilot of the Cessna 185 Ski-plane (ZK-COH) that I flew in on 13th November 1973 at Mount Cook Airport. He was a Senior Pilot with Mount Cook Airlines (Ski-planes) at the time. I think he could be Merv or Mervyn but I cannot find any more details. If you can help or one of your local contacts might know."
I have suggested Merv Halliday however Fred has been in touch with Merv who states it wasn't him. Does anyone know of any other Merv who would have been flying skiplanes in 1973, or alternatively identify a senior pilot at that time. If so, please respond to this request.

I have just received an email from the inquirer, Fred Barnes, who has been contacted by Merv Halliday. Merv says the pilot was Chris Boon. Thank you to the above three correspondents for your suggestions. I consider the case is closed.
