As usual, there were lots of helicopters around Ardmore - perhaps less than on a weekday. They have been well covered in recent posts on this blog, but here are a couple of different offerings.
Guimbal Cabri G2 ZK-IMS (c/n 1036) is a recent import via a different route, having come from Denmark where it was OY-HJA. It is owned by HFT Ltd of Papkura and was very recently registered on 4/8/14. It is the only one in Auckland at present. The operators say they are very pleased with it.
And a new sign on the ex-Eurocopter hangar. Airbuses are on the rise at Auckland International Airport, and now they are at Ardmore. Should we call Eurocopters Airbus's now? - or maybe Airminibuses?
