Taranaki based Robinson R44 ZK-HLB was tied down in a corner on the airport. It seemed to be fitted with a signficant array of electronic equipment (internally) and may have been employed on power line survey activity which had been conducted in the Drury area earlier in the day.
Registered to a Helensville address, Piper PA28RT Arrow ZK-PAE arrived at Ardmore in company with Vans RV7A ZK-VII, both arriving from the north and taxiing to the Flightline hanger. ZK-VII was constructed at Cromwell, Central Otago, and remains registered to its builder however appears to reside at North Shore/Dairy Flat. Smart looking machine!
