Out of the CMM archives comes this photograph of the James Aviation Ltd Hughes 369HS ZK-HLK (c/n 44-0586S).
A product of April 1974 she came to NZ to be registered to James Aviation Ltd of Hamilton on 15-10-1979 and was posted down to the "West Coast".
It is seen here still all bright and shiny.
It crashed near Otira on 10-12-1979.
So a short timer indeed.
Its registration was cancelled on 17-01-1980 and its remains were removed to Taieri.
