Bell 429 ZK-IXW (first of type)

A surprise arrival at Ardmore early this afternoon was recently registered and first of type to NZ Bell 429 ZK-IXW. It was registered to Advanced Flight at Pikes Point on 20 January 2011 and arrived at Ardmore for what appeared to be a compass swing exercise.

Does the fact the registration includes the letter XW allude to it being operated on behalf of Fay/Richwhite?
All the heliocopters this partnership have had over the years have had XW marks.

  2. Yes, seen flying from Great Mercury Island over Summer 2013/2014, likely Michael Fay as David Richwhite is in London.
