Hiller UH12 N1048N

Freshly unpacked this morning (19-09-2011) from its container at Heli Maintenance in Christchurch was this Hiller UH-12B N1048N (c/n 737). Originally built for the US military as an OH23B Raven with the serial number of 54-2943. It was supplied to the Netherlands Army under the MDAP (Mutual Defence Assistance Program) in about OCtober of 1955. It initially carried the serial O-9. It was stuck of charge in December of 1965. Its US civil history is a bit vague (to me) at the moment.
I expect it will become ZK-HAB3 shortly.
