Other Helos at Mechanics Bay Heliport 12-4-2014

Apart from "Police 1" there were a selection of other helicopters at Mechanics Bay yesterday:

Helilink's AS 355 F1 Twin Squirrel ZK-HPA in their new Inflite markings.

Kawasaki BK 117 B-2 ZK-IPT flew in, in rather plain colours.  Ownership is shown as Search and Rescue Services of Taupo, but it may be at least temporarily based at Mechanics Bay as it was later towed into the hangar.  In the background is the rather posh Mikado restaurant.

And thankfully staying in their hangar were the Auckland Regional Rescue Helicopter Trust's two  Westpac Kawasaki BK 117 B-2's ZK-HKZ and ZK-HLN.  I say thankfully because that meant no-one had been badly injured out there.
