how did an NZ-designed aircraft end up in North Korea?

The plane, a P-750 XSTOL manufactured by Pacific Aerospace, was sold to China but was spotted last week by the Aviation Week website at North Korea's first airshow.

Prime Minister John Key said it would concern him if the plane was exported there in some way because New Zealand has a ban on exports to North Korea.

He said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) was getting advice on exactly how the plane got there, under what conditions and how long it had been there for.
