Campbell's 2nd Hand Chopper Sales.

Below we have a line up of three (there were more) of the ZK registered helicopters that were involved in Campbells'  2nd Hand Chopper Sale.
Note that the hard stands and the track in the foreground are made from PSP (perforated steel planking) aka Marston Matting which was used extensively during WWII - especially in the Pacific Islands for airfield construction. 
They are parked out front of the main hostel on Campbell Island. (52.56S  169.14E approx).
As a useless aside - this hostel was manufactured by the Bristol Aeroplane Company and installed for the IGY of 1957/58.

For those who enjoy scenic vistas - here we are looking approximately due east down Perseverance Harbour with Lyall Ridge extending from top left to Moubray (Castle) and Point near the Harbour entrance. On the extreme right is Shoal Point.
                      The year is 2001 and this is the Rat Eradication project on Campbell Island.

There are numerous other reports on 'Google'.
