Following Classic Flyiers Museum, Tauranga, NZ delivery last year 2018 of the 5 virtually complete Wessex HC2s,XR511,XS675,XT606,XT680 and XV730, I believe 4 are to be sold, and 1 kept for the museum. Are they to be kept airworthy, any info appreciated, or is it still a bit early for evaluation.

Covered on a Wings Over New Zealand forum, with photos. I contacted the museum with some period photos and information but they were very dismissive so I decided my efforts were best spent elsewhere.

All these aircraft have left the museum and and now back with there correct owner. still subject to a ongoing court case that should have never see them moved there to begin with!
