Noted yesterday at Heli Maintenance in Christchurch was the MD 500N NOTAR ZK-IEG (c/n LN016).
This NOTAR was originally N52110 with MD Helicopters of Mesa Arizona from 08-02-1992 before venturing up to Canada to become C-FMYW with Heli-Max Ltd at Trois Riveres Quebec four months later. It was re-listed to Heli-Transport Inc of same address on 13-02-2006 and was noted soon after listed for sale with around 6400 airframe hours.
It popped up in NZ as ZK-IJW with Reid Heslop Helicopters at Wakefield from 24-08-2011.

By 22-12-2016 it was listed to Heliventures NZ Ltd of Oamaru who re-registered it as ZK-IEGon 25-01-2017.
I noted it yesterday wearing small Amuri Helicopter Ltd markings and in this all white scheme.
Of interest on the rear of the fuselage was the 'Down To The Wire' label.

To complete the picture - so to speak - we have below a pic of it as ZK-IJW as seen at Glenorchy on 24-10-2015 by Magnaman.
And as ZK-IEG in its Heliventures NZ Ltd scheme at Heli Maintenance Christchurch on 16-11-2017.
