New Mitsubishi MU 2 Air Ambulance at Hamilton 20-12-2016

While Richard Currie was doing Thames, I departed Te Kowhai for Otorohanga on my own medivac mission to pick up injured grandson (on crutches).  So it happened that we had to drive past Hamilton Airport on our way back to Auckland!

While photographing various aircraft, said grandson told me that a fluorescent lime green black striped aircraft had taxied past.  What the hey?  It turned out to be Search and Rescue Ltd Taupo's new Mitsubishi MU-2B-60 ZK-PSR (c/n 1569SA) operating as a Westpac Air Ambulance.  This aircraft has only been registered in New Zealand since 1/6/16 and its previous identities are N696CM, N222HH and N502MA.

Taxying for Runway 18

and take off to points South.
