Ardmore helicopters on Monday.

A rather belated post, on my part, of two images provided by Keith Morris of his visit to Ardmore on Monday the 14th.
Below is the MBB MBB-BKK117 B-2 as seen on Monday.
It was registered as ZK-HIQ4 (c/n 7009) on Wednesday the 16th to Airwork (NZ) Ltd.
This is one of a batch of ex ADAC BK's acquired by Airwork.
 Below a photo of ZK-HIQ4 in its previous German marks of D-HBKK.

Below - also on Monday.
Over at Oceania Keith spotted these two unmarked Eurocopter AS332L Super Puma's.


  1. Both these Super Pumas are ex Japanese Army (JGSDF) and arrived at Ardmore from the Ports of Auckland on 6-4-18.
    The machine on the left is 00001/ST msn 2162 Test serial JA9629.
    The machine on the right is 00003/ST msn 2125 Test serial JA9031.

  2. Thanks for the confirmation agairnz - thought that would be them but with no visible markings I didn't take the risk of assuming.
