Bristol 170 Freighter Mk.31M

NZ5909 / ZK-EPE


Taken at Ardmore: 21 May, 1989 A rather sad sight - this aircraft, along with two others was sitting derelict. I understand a number of these aircraft were purchased Dwen when they were retired by the RNZAF. Several flew to new homes overseas. One of the derelicts has been restored and is now a restaurant at Waihi Beach. I don't know what has become of the others.
