Registration is NZ7572 as in New Zealand I don't belief that is an N-number as in FAA reg.

It's also a military tail # vs. a civilian reg.

It's NZ owned and registered, formerly flew for Transavia under the Dutch register.

PS a valid US N reg must start with a digit between 1-9 so NZ7572 can't work and N7572Z is a Piper Super Cub
