The same but different.
A look in at Garden City Helicopters found two of their Aerospatiale/Eurocopter AS 350 Squirrel/Ecureuil helicopters on site.
Above is the AS 350BA ZK-HQT2 (c/n 1729) now in full Garden City colour scheme.
Below is the AS 350BA ZK-HUG2 (c/n 2038).
It wears smaller 'ZK' marks, floatation gear on its skids and Vanuatu Helicopters script.
Its registration had been transferred from Garden City Helicopters Ltd to Vanuatu Helicopters back on 21-03-2015.
On the other side of the airport at Heli Maintenance we see the Robinson R22 Beta ZK-HXN2 (c/n 2141) from Macsil Deer Farms Ltd of Clearwater, Christchurch.
HQT new base, was once the Rescue Helicopter based at Nelson. HUG also has Rescue titles on boom.ReplyDelete
