Hughes 369 paint scheme

Found this somewhat differently painted Hughes 369 in a hangar at Queenstown.
I believe it to be Kim Hollows of Fiordland Helicopters H369D ZK-HJO2 , c/n 107-0204D.
These aren't getting any younger. Cranked out in 1978 it spent ten years as N8699F before drifting down to Australia to become VH-AJZ.
Jo Faram of Gisborne picked it up as ZK-HJO on 16-02-1996, followed by a period with Miller Helicopters near Thames from June of 97. It was listed to Fiordland Helicopters on 14-04-00.

  1. It is indeed ZK-HJO. When I last saw it, it was being flown by Jonathon Laravee, son of Larry Laravee. It lives with sister ship ZK-HTI on the road to Milford.
