Ardmore 19Feb08

Noted at the Oceania maintenance facility this morning were a couple of interesting machines. ZK-IFS is now sporting Farm Spray titles. The pilot/owner even kindly came out and asked if I wanted the door shut! Don't come across that very often at Ardmore these days.

More interesting was the roll out of BK117 ZK-III following an extensive rebuild operation. This all white machine has been in the Oceania hanger for a while, not exactly sure when or from where it arrived. ZK-III, ex ZK-HHI, was badly damaged back on 14Jan 2003 when it collided with trees enroute from Wellington to Masterton on a night medical transfer flight.
