Hi John, Frans AVPIC took pictures of ZS-WBM last week at EAA Klerksdorp. Very similar color scheme.

My 60 year old ex crop duster, 1952 PA-18A Super Cub ZS-DGI based at Wings Park, beautifully restored by FASH based Chris Langeveld.

Note the interesting old 4 wheel experimental undercarriage system. Apparently was not too successful.

So rewarding seeing an old warrior given a new lease on life.

Would anyone by any chance have pictures/log book entries of a Piper Aztec ZS-FVC from the 70's and 80's. (she also had reg ZS-CAP for awhile). I am trying to fill in some gaps on the aircrafts history. My assumptions are that she may have been fitted with Flare Racks and have been involved in some cloud seeding operations back in the day. Tks.

Do you mean a picture from the 70s / 80s or just referring to the plane that was active back then?

Tks for the pictures. To answer the question asked- In particular I am looking for photos of the aircraft during that time i.e. 70's & 80's. Pre Internet and digital age so probably in slide or print form somewhere. Also looking for the logbooks from 1970 through to 1985. tks
