Ardmore 13 Sep

Nothing "new" as such noted, however I was pleasantly surprised to note a couple of new schemes on show. Firstly was that now applied to Harvard ZK-WAR. Anyone know the background to the nose art and also the sequence of numbers/letter on the rear fuselage as shown here?

Secondly was Hughes 500E ZK-HZP sporting a new scheme since I last saw it parked near downtown Hamilton in April this year.

All wrapped up and ready to head off shore is HNZ's Bell 212 ZK-HNO. This helicopter arrived at Oceania earlier this week and has quickly been cocooned ready for a trip to unknown shores. I understand HNZ are not deploying a Bell 212 to Antarctica this season, but instead will be operating a Eurocopter EC130 that is coming from the USA.


  1. thats a nice paint scheme for a change

  2. has the caa changed its rules on aircraft regisations i see a 152 reg bud ,throught a and b were for vintage aircraft and if a plane was still around ie dismantled or in a muesum you could nt use those letters
