DHC 2 Beaver Amphibian ZK-WKA 15-7-2015

Although well covered in other posts on this blog, today was my first chance to see Auckland Seaplanes DHC 2 Beaver ZK-WKA in the flesh so a few shots were in order.

It is an impressive looking machine, and stands very tall.

I was told that it will be land based, at an airport in Auckland that is yet to be determined.

It is Baron STOL equipped and is on the EAA Antique Classic register..

The amphibious floats are by Wipline.

And later it taxied out for some engine runs.

Very nice.

  1. Nice looking plane, but it looks like a fish out of water on land.
