Purely by chance I was passing the Garden City Helicopter facility today and observed a flurry of helicopter activity to and from Hagley Park.
See Press news item below:-
Above a general view across the area shows the AS 350BA ZK-HGH (c/n 1443) with the all white BK117 B-2 ZK-IVB (c/n 7061) and the BK117 B-2 ZK-IMN (c/n 1018) in the distance.
Above is a closer shot of the Aerospatiale AS 350BA ZK-HGH.
Above is the locally based Kawasaki BK117 B-2 ZK-HJC3.
Two views of the normally Nelson based Kawasaki BK117 B-2 ZK-IMN.
Below is the MBB BK117 B-2 ZK-IVB.
Some time later I noted what looked like a black BK117 heading for town (ZK-HUP from Dunedin ?).
Now I know why I continue to donate to the Westpac Helicopter Appeal.
You never know when you may need them.
