F-ODAN from the French invasion. Now ZK-TZB.

As mentioned earlier in the "I remember when - French invasion" blog, the Robin DR400/180 F-ODAN c/n 1043, flew back into Auckland via Norfolk Island on 18-11-2003. It was registered as ZK-TZB2 to Izard Pacific Aviation Ltd of Springhill on 20-01-2004 and transferred to I B Communications Ltd of Palmerston North on 11-05-2004. It returned to Izard Pacific on 01-09-2005, remaining with them until taken over by David Fletcher of Wellsford and based at Springhill until moving to Kaipara Flat in July of 2010.

These two, very much more recent shots, were supplied by Jean210 and show it as ZK-TZB2 with its manufacturers plate - still stamped with its original French registration.
