I dropped into Amuri Helicopters at Hanmer last Wednesday - just to be nosey - and picked up this shot of the Aerospatiale AS 350BA/FX ZK-HJM, c/n 1671, about to do some bucket spreading tests.
We have featured this helicopter before. See:-
Their two R44's were also on site.
Outside Hangar One at Christchurch yesterday was the Boeing 737-33A ZK-NGP , c/n 27459, bereft of engines and ANZ markings.
It carried out its last revenue flight on the 14th.
Also yesterday at Hangar One but with just its nose extending beyond the buildings was Boeing 737-8FE VH-VOM ,c/n 33794, "Little Blue Peep".
Looks like a frost covered fuse - but too late in the day !
