For a nation whose air force didn't operate them, we sure have a decent amount Wink (and yes I'm aware of the NZ RAF squadrons, just meaning the RNZAF itself Smiley )

I make the following list:
IXc PV270/ZK-SPI - Brendon Deere, Ohakea
Tr.IX MH367/ZK-WDQ - Doug Brooker, under repair at AvSpecs, Ardmore
XIV NH799/ZK-XIV - Provenance Fighter Sales, under rebuild at AvSpecs, Ardmore (for sale if you want it tongue.gif )
XVI TB252/N??? - Tony Banta, under rebuild at AvSpecs, Ardmore
XVI TE288 - RNZAF Museum, Wigram
XVI TE456 - Auckland War Memorial Museum

And, of course, the three Mk.Vs and two Mk.XVIs that have departed our shores in the last decade.

Anyone with any additions? Also photos, especially of NH799 and TB252 as they are now.

IX BR601 is now at AvSpecs for restoration also, although the owner apparently wishes to remain anonymous.
