Narrative:
Rallye Club c/n 5302 became ZK-CDB with Seabrook Fowlds on 24.1.1963. It then went to Whangarei with the Northland Districts Aero Club. By 1965, ZK-CDB had moved on to the Mercury Bay aero club at Whitianga. Still on the move, ZK-CDB went to R P J Poole, Auckland in June 1968 and to H N C Monkton, Hamilton in September the same year.

An attempt at hand-starting went awry at Hamilton airfield at 6.15pm on 18.12.1968, and ZK-CDB was damaged beyond repair in the ensuring unpiloted "runaway", when it ran into a ditch. As a result the registration ZK-CDB was cancelled ten months later, on 28.10.1969.

However, parts of this aircraft were subsequently employed in the rebuild of the damaged ZK-CBW to become ZK-CDE.
