Bell 47G ZK-HAY

Just dug out a couple of monochrome pics of the Helicopters (NZ) Ltd's Bell 47G-4-PHI ZK-HAY (c/n 2767).
Top view was at Makarora on 16-04-1966, and below, as seen at Invercargill on 19-04-1969.
It had a rotor strike at Mt Owen on 10-12-1969 and was cancelled in mid January of 1970.
I seem to recall that I spied it (or one marked as HAY) being used as an entertainment machine, mounted near the old museum at the base of the gondola in Queenstown in 1979/1980.
