Taken Thursday evening just near the control tower at Tauranga Airport were these two machines from Rick Lucas Helicopters Ltd.
The most distant is the Aerospatiale AS 355 F1 ZK-HXO2 (c/n 5284). This is a 1983 example which came from Japan in mid 2001 and spent about three and a half years with Airwork before moving to Helilink on February of 2004. It joined Rick Lucas in May of 2008.
The nearer is the Bell 206B JetRanger II ZK-HRS2 (c/n 877). This one was cranked out in late 1972 and came out of Japan to NZ in late 1999. It has been in the Rick Lucas fleet since July of 2000.
