Flying Solo: New Zealand aviation features in full length movie



A BRIGHT yellow Tiger Moth is one of the main characters in a New Zealand-made full-length film shortly to be released.
Bill Dittmer's ZK-BCZ, which has consistently won prizes for being the Tiger Club's Most Magnificent Moth since he rebuilt it a few years ago, aptly plays the part of a newly-restored Tiger and is used for the bulk of the flying sequences in Tony Williams' production Solo. Also providing action in the first half and at the end is Geyserland Airways' Cessna 172 ZK-DXO, painted to represent a fire patrol aircraft flown around some of the more scenic areas of the pine forests near Tokoroa.
