In the previous posting we talked about the Bell 47J-2 Ranger ZK-HGO.
Assisting HGO in this offshore oil exploration work was the Hughes 369HS ZK-HIA.
Once again the photographs come from the CMM collection.
This delivery change apparently came about due to its late arrival in NZ.
All three photographs were taken at Christchurch during August of 1975.
In the top photo - if memory serves me correctly - the white fenced area beyond the tail was the old landing "T" and further back is the old site for the meteorological enclosure with runway 29 beyond.
I think the fenced area behind the tail is the lid of an underground water tank. ive used it as a pad a few times....ReplyDelete
Yes you are correct.
Also on further thought the "Landing T" would have been near the control tower.
Aint memory a fine thing !!
