Ardmore 28-01-2015 by Magnaman

Magnaman did a quick flit around Ardmore today and offers the following three photographs.
 Over at Airwork the Eurocopter EC 145 G-SRNE (c/n 9283) was being pushed into the hangar.
This is from the motor yacht M/Y Serene.
 At Oceania was the Bell 412 ZK-IKA (c/n 36055). This helicopter began as C-FOPX in August of 1992 before becoming N6162C in December 1993. It shifted to Japan where it became JA6710 on 03-03-1993 and was used by the Miyagi Prefectural Police Aviation Unit. It was withdrawn from service in January 2014 and became ZK-IKA with Aerospace Trading Limited, Papakura on 23-12-2014. As can be seen it is undergoing some serious checks.
Reasonably new to the register is the 1954 Piper PA-22-135 (PA-20-180) ZK-PAL3 (c/n 22-2298) as listed to the Tail Dragger Classics Ltd of Ponsonby. It replaced their previous PA-22-150 ZK-PAT2.

  1. Aerospace Trading Ltd is another name for Oceania! They share the same PO Box number.
    ZK-PAL I understand is yet to fly.
