Scouting 'round my local patch today stumbled across a couple of visiting European's.
Whitianga based Bolkow BO209 "Monsun" ZK-MON (168) nee D-EAAH was placed on the NZ register on 13Aug this year. This is a first of type in NZ which is interesting considering the types maiden flight was way back in December 1967! Production was short lived, ceasing in 1971 with only 102 aircraft built.
Also visiting Ardmore today was Robin DR400/180 ZK-TZB (1043) which has been around since late 2003 based at Wellsford. It flew into Auckland back on 18Nov 2003 from Norfolk Island as F-ODAN. It came onto the ZK register 20Jan 2004.
Oceania Aviation Aerospatiale AS350BA Squirrel ZK-HRD (1535) has been undergoing maintenance at their facility.
