Cookson Airspread's Airline Revisited

Allan Wooller sent me some classic photos of some of Cookson Airspread's aircraft that were used on the company's Napier-Wairoa-Gisborne air service...

Cookson's first airliner - Cessna 180 ZK-BVQ at Wairoa.

The Cessna 180 was later replaced with a larger Cessna 185 ZK-CAK seen here at Fielding in August 1979.

A later addition to the fleet was Cessna 172A ZK-BWL taken at Fielding in June 1974. 

Running alongside their Piper Aztec was Piper Cherokee 6 ZK-DOP, added to the fleet in 1979.
