Apparently belongs to KHL Theron who has owned it since 30/01/1986.It`s a 1965 PA 32 (260hp).
Life is too short for cheap wine or slow cars.

ZS-NKM is now owned by Kelston Motors, my ex-boss. Very nice machine!

Impala 466 is now off the pole it was on
Not sure of its future but it would be a real pity if it is not preserved

Twas one of the first modern cockpit and AC equipped Barons to hit out shores. I flew her quite a bit in the 90s when she belonged to Karan Beef. Nice aerie.
And now Karan Beef have recently acquired a new King Air 350 .. ZS-KBF (Karen Beef Feedlots)

Kev,

Was it Karan beef? They operated a Caravan, B200 and recently a new B350.

I remember flying NKM a few times too. Was definitely a beef farmer but not sure it was Karan. The owner was a large guy. Him and his son would often be taken to auctions in the northern cape, Kimberly, Douglas area if I recall.

She was a great airrie to fly. Modern cockpit, power pitch mixture levers all in the correct order and a aircon fitted as standard.

A pilot's professionalism is judged by how he flies when nobody is looking
