Some rotary wing bits from Christchurch

Finally arriving, and unloaded from its container at Heli Maintenance at Christchurch International on 30-07-2010 was the all yellow Robinson R44 Astro ZK-HDM3 c/n 0072. Currently it carries only the last two letters of its registration, but this will be changed shortly to the full ZK-HDM marks for it to participate in its intended role.
