Civil helicopters at NZMS

The Wairarapa Helicopters Hughes 369E ZK-HCD3 (c/n 0021E) is seen above doing a dump in front of the multitude on Saturday.
Above we see the Keven Roberts Robinson R44 Raven 11 ZK-HTG2 (c/n 10521) at rest near the Aero Club.
Another of the Wairarapa Helicopters machines on site was the Hughes 269C ZK-HXS2 (c/n 730224) which only joined them on 16-09-2012.
Amalgamated Helicopters Wairarapa Ltd had their EMS rigged Hughes 369E ZK-INZ (c/n 0237E) on display in the public arena. Note the airfoil shaped extension out the side designed to hold a stretcher cross ways. This is a similar set up to that used by Mt Hutt Helicopters on ZK-HLE back in the late 80's.
Not connected with the show - but a show in its own right - was the delivery of the DH82A Tiger Moth ZK-BLK back to the Masterton Airfield by Hughes 369E ZK-HCD following its engine failure and successful forced landing on 06-01-2013.
