Sighted by me for the first time out in the sunshine today (04-02-2012) at Heli Maintenance at Christchurch was the Hiller UH-12B ZK-HAB3 (c/n 737). This is still awaiting the cancellation of its US N1048N registration before it can be officially listed here in NZ.
This is a genuine Hiller OH-23B Raven built for the US military with the serial 54-2943, and with a date of manufacture of 09-04-1958. It served its early millitary career with the Royal Netherlands Air Force under the MDAP scheme (Mutual Defence Assistance Program).

  1. Saw HAB fly over my house today - had to rush in to search out its details as I hadn't seen this before!
