Manawatu Rescue Helicopter

Tim Gorman was out and about in the Manawatu a couple of days ago and at the Palmerston North Hospital helipad he photo'd the local rescue helicopter arriving and then quickly leaving on another assignment:

ZK-HHJ3 is a Kawasaki BK 117 B-2 (c/n 1109) that was first registered in New Zealand on 30/11/18.  It is registered to Search and Rescue Services Ltd of Taupo who provide helicopter rescue services based at Hamilton, Tauranga, Taupo and Palmerston North for the Philips Search and Rescue Trust.  ZK-HHJ3 has not been posted on the blog previously.

Thanks for the photo Tim.
