I was driving through Murchison on Sunday (as you do) and found both of the Murchison Heli Tours Ltd's Squirrels out in the sunshine.
Eurocopter AS 350 B3 ZK-IKA2 (c/n 3409) is a recent addition to the fleet having transferred over from Action Helicopters Ltd of Queenstown on 20 September 2019.
This helicopter has served time in Italy, Indonesia and Australia before coming to NZ to become ZK-IGY with Action on 26 January 2017. It was re-registered to ZK-IKA on 6 September.
A photo of it as ZK-IGY can be seen Here.
Aerospatiale AS 350 BA ZK-ILW (c/n 2459) started in Japan in 1991 followed by time in the Philippines and then Australia. It was registered as ZK-ILW and to Murchison Heli-Tours on 9 November 2017.
An earlier pic of ZK-ILW can be seen Here.
