Ardmore Yesterday 24-11-2021

After the very quiet Auckland International I travelled on to Ardmore.  It was even quieter and there was only a couple of Westpac Rescue helicopter movements.

This was a typical scene at all the training establishments.

These two Super Pumas were parked up at Oceana Helicopters.  They were also unpacking more ex Japanese helicopters from a container on site.

The ex Fly My Sky Britten Norman BN2A Islander ZK-SFK was parked near Dennis Thompson's minus its titles.  Ownership changed to Auckland Seaplanes Ltd on 2/8/21.

I was really scratching for something of interest, so I photo'd the back of the NZ Warbirds Hangar 1 which now has a mural of their BE 2E painted large.

Thanks to Jordan Elvy and Richard Currie, this Airvan is VH-LHV (c/n 04-045) which was first registered as VH-UAF  in December 2003.  It is an ex MAF aircraft that flew into Auckland International and later to Ardmore on 1/10/21.  Its history can be posted later when it is registered here.

Then finally I visited another hangar which housed a VERY shiny red and silver aircraft of which we will feature in the near future.

  1. The air van is ex Australian, yet to be registered. ZK-ZEA returned from Omaka early evening yesterday.
