Misc Ardmore rotary wings.

Magnaman managed an Ardmore look see today and sent in these helicopter pics. 
Flavour of the week appears to be MBB-BK117's
 Above are three as yet unidentified (to me) airframes awaiting the attention of the Airwork team.
 Another MBB-BK117 is this B2 D-HEMS2 c/n 7203. 
This started as D-HIMT in about 1993 before becoming D-HEMS in July of 2003 with ADAC Luftrettung. It was cancelled from the German register on 09-04-2014.
MBB-BKK 117 B2 ZK-INI c/n 7179 was D-HBHV from June of 1988 before going Stateside to become N5405G. Itt was registered to Airwork (NZ) Ltd on 08-12-2014.
I don't know if you are a leg person or not - but these three sets are worthy of further study.
On the left we have Bell 206 LongRanger ZK-HMA c/n 45049 of John Grove. This was previously ZK-HCK2.
 Central is the LongRanger ZK-HMJ c/n 46616 of Melvin Jones (Both of the same Pakuranga address).
And on the right we have the Agusta Bell AG206B ZK-IBB c/n 8015 of EDL Equipment of Botany. This is ex Royal Saudi Air Force.
They have been ousted from their hangar to permit a movie/video production to take place within.
