NZD $85,000 o.n.o. (+ GST if sold in NZ)
Mid-life engine, ceconite control surfaces, judged to be one of the nicest flying Nanchangs in the country (by someone who has flown them all). VHF, TXP, new ADSB, ELT, smoke system. Long history of activity within NZ, located at Omaka (since 1995).

The Nanchang will give you a 135 knot cruise on 60 litres an hour. You can enjoy graceful aerobatics all day long, get into some exhilarating bridge strafing out in the back blocks or take your 'favourite other' for a weekend away, with plenty of baggage space for you both!  It is a well built, strong, easy to maintain, gift to aviation and the best lead-in warbird money can buy.  To be sold with a fresh annual.
