Helicopters @ Pukaki/Twizel

The Helicopter Line have had a couple of Squirrels based in the Twizel township for some years; beside the hotel and near the DOC HQ.
Recently they moved to the Pukaki Airfield which is currently in the throes of development with hangar/accommodation sites being sold off and sealed road/taxi ways laid down.
I have been through there twice recently. On 09-12-2009 AS355F1 Ecureuil 2 ZK-HMI2 (c/n 5029) and AS355F1 Twin Star ZK-HKF2 (c/n 5200) sat forlornly under the rain and low cloud.
On 02-01-2010, under more pleasant conditions, the AS350D AStar ZK-HBR2 (c/n 1386) had replaced ZK-HMI.
