Helicopters from North Shore

And continuing Helicopter Friday, here are a couple from North Shore that I have photo'd recently:

The Northland Emergency Services Trust's Sikorsky S 76A ZK-IKM lifts off on 19/9/18.  This has been posted on the blog before but not in the standard NEST scheme - have a look at its old scheme by typing in ZK-IKM into the search box at the top left of the home screen..

and the Ralph Schultz Helicopters Ltd's Hughes H369E ZK-INO lifts off on 14/9/18.


  1. is the snowshoe supposed to be at that angle?

  2. Maybe it doesn't matter as there is not much snow in Northland!

  3. Bear paws on 500’s are like that to adjust to ground and skid angles
