Bristol 170 Freighter Mk.31M

NZ5906 / ZK-EPC


Taken at Waihi Beach Airfield, 11 April, 1996

While on holiday in the small, but friendly town of Waihi Beach, I took the opportunity to catch up with this aircraft. I have previously seen this aircraft in the air, during its short service with Hercules Airways, when it was displayed at the RNZAF Golden Anniversary airshow at Whenuapai in 1987. Its role is somewhat different now, and in the hands of Mr John Black it provides interesting surroundings for a very nice meal.
