The Cresco

A later development is the 750-horsepower PAC Cresco aircraft. This is a turbo-prop powered development of the Fletcher aircraft, made by the Pacific Aerospace Corporation in Hamilton, New Zealand. It can carry a bigger fertiliser load than the Fletcher and has short take-off and landing distances.
