"The Hughes 369HS is a December 1974 production machine – The construction number tells us that; and its previous identity was N600BC. It has recently operated from the Tuna fishing boat Captain M J Souza, and flew into Nelson on 04-12-2002. It became ZK-HTL4 with Talleys Fisheries on January the 7th.
It passed through Ardmore on 15/16-01-03, still on floats, on its way to Whangarei to rejoin a Tuna boat.
