Squirrel ZK-HYS & Lama ZK-IRA go offshore.

ZK-HYS at Queenstown 16-08-2008
Aerospatiale AS350B2 Squirrel ZK-HYS/3, c/n 2447 , was imported from Nepal for a re-work by Heliquip International (just out of Nelson) and registered to them on 05-07-2000 before delivery and listing to Southern Lakes Helicopters. It moved over to Heli-Works Queenstown Helicopters In May 2002.
It was cancelled as exported on 17-06-2008.

Also going offshore is the Sud-Est SA315B Lama ZK-IRA , c/n 2555 , from Gisborne Helicopters.
It was an Oceania import during 2005 and joined our register on 10-11-2006. It was cancelled on 24-06-2008.
Final destination of both machines is unknown (to me) at this stage.
