Steadfast is now registered in NZ as Yakovlev Yak-3U ZK-YOV to Team Steadfast Limited Blenheim (i.e. Omaka)

While I'm here I'll mention some WW1 replica activity in NZ. NZ Warbirds have imported (to fly) Carl R. Swanson Siemens-Schuckert D.IV Model SSW D-IV replica that was at Planes of Fame Museum, Valle-Williams, AZ.
And the first of the four Bristol Fighter replicas built for movies in the late 1970's and brought to NZ by Graham Orphan has flown. It too will go to NZ Warbirds, one has been sold to Australia, one will stay with an Omaka syndicate and the last is still available.

Still looking for details. The only info I got so far is that it's a museum with an unpronounceable name... ;-)

Can you post something with the Chinese characters or the alphabetic facsimile? If it uses western alphabet characters it is likely Pinyin which can be translated readily.

Quote:
Hànyǔ Pīnyīn, often abbreviated to pinyin, is the official romanization system for Standard Chinese in mainland China and to some extent in Taiwan. It is often used to teach Standard Mandarin Chinese, which is normally written using Chinese characters. The system includes four diacritics denoting tones. Pinyin without tone marks is used to spell Chinese names and words in languages written with the Latin alphabet and also in certain computer input methods to enter Chinese characters.


I have ready access to someone that can translate from either the characters or Pinyin.

on 41CQ: OK, will work on that.
Info I have: an Aviation Museum in Beijing, so far with aircraft on static display. 41CQ will be the first flyer. So, most likely it should be at an airport.
To be continued...
