Bill Mannix captured the scene at the GCH Aviation Rescue Helicopter Base at Nelson Airport his morning.

Nearest on the left is the Beechcraft C90A King Air ZK-FDN2 with the Kawasaki  BK117 B2 ZK-IMN and the  Aerospatiale AS 350 BA Squirrel ZK-HQT2 partially hidden by the Beechcraft B200C Super King Air ZK-FDR2 which was up from Christchurch on a patient transfer.

A piece of Nelson Airport history is about to be demolished.
This large number 3 hangar was built for the RNZAF and completed in July of 1941.
A new Crash Fire facility is to take its place.
