Thursdays catch.

A quick visit to the Christchurch "Heli Centre" this afternoon (Thurs 10-07-2014) found these four helicopters.
 At Pacific Aviation was the Robinson R22 Beta ZK-HEB c/n 1135 as currently listed to Heli-Hire of Ngongotaha.
 Another interesting Robinson R22 Beta was ZK-HPY c/n 4207 which is listed to Sue Jess Investments Ltd with a Brisbane, Australia address. Was the Robbie I passed in the Lindis Pass/Morven Hills area the other day ?
 Outside Heli Maintenance was the Hughes 369FF ZK-HUJ3 c/n 0149FF of Mount Hutt Helicopters Ltd marked in its West Coast subsidiary Coastwide Helicopters markings. (All part of Kershaw Holdings).
By my count we have had only six of this 369FF model in NZ with its Allison 250-C30 engine (more grunt for hot and high work).
And lifting off from the Helipro pad was the Hughes 369D ZK-HOJ c/n 490491D which joined Helicontrax just over a month ago. This helicopter has been around since 1981.
