I think I may be asking the impossible but does anyone have any shotsof the Rennies Air aircraft. The photos would probably be scanned ones but any would really be appreciated.

Here's a pic I found of Rennie's Air ZS-RGR:

This aircraft has been languishing at FAWB for 24 years - most of the time in the hangar of AMC.
It is being revived - I saw the engines being tested on 1 May 2019 after overhaul.

It shared a hangar with my Seneca in the 90's and I always saw it gathering dust in AMC's hangar. Glad to see it come back to life!
