Two from Motueka

Two more photographs from Matt Hayes
Taken at Motueka on 02-01-2017.
Both departing for Nelson to uplift passengers.
Bell 206B JetRanger III ZK-IOI (c/n 3060) as listed with Coast to Coast Helicopters 2013 Ltd.
Aerospatiale AS 350 BA ZK-ISS2 (c/n 1299). 
This first entered our register as a B model ZK-HWW for Airwork (NZ) Ltd on 04-11-1980 and went to Whirlwide Helicopters Ltd of Timaru from 04-03-1981 with a switch to Helicopter Line Ltd on 15-07-1988.
It was rebuilt at Timaru in the mid-1990's and sold to Stevenson Skywork Helicopters Ltd of Warkworth on 03-04-1997. The Company was renamed Skywork Helicopters Ltd and the Squirrel was upgraded to the AS 350 BA model from 29-01-2003. 
It was then re-registered as ZK-ISS2 on 08-12-2016.
Both these machines are actually used by Seacoast Helicopters but are on the operating certificate of Coast to Coast Helicopters.
