TBM-3e Avenger

ZK-TBM (as NZ2518)


Taken at Rukuhia, Easter, 1995. The markings on the side 'Plonky' were added to the original aircraft by Fred Ladd, a well known aviator in New Zealand circles (now deceased), who happened to a tee-totaller. He thought the idea of dropping barrels of beer was therefore insulting!
