AB206A and CH-136

Seen today (14-09-2012) at Tauranga was the Agusta Bell AB206A ZK-HMU3 (c/n 8127) of H F T Ltd. As can be seen it still carries its Austrian Air Force markings.

Below we have the recently listed ZK-IXL (c/n 44062). This is listed as a Bell OH-58A Kiowa. It has previously served with the Canadian Armed Forces (S/n 136262) with whom it was classified as a CH-136. It later went to the States and then to Australia.
I am sure that if you look at the manufacturers plate you will find that it will be stamped "Manufactures Model 206A-1" and "Customers Model OH-58A".
