Andrew Gillatt of Tasman Helicopters Above and Beyond Ltd has kindly provided these shots of the Eurocopter EC 130 B4 ZK-IEC (c/n 4951) taken on 10-02-2001, before its visit to the paint shop. It was imported to replace the earlier EC 130 B4 ZK-HEC3 (c/n 3721).
However when the buyer of ZK-HEC spied the new ZK-IEC he made an offer for that instead. So ZK-IEC was sold and cancelled from the NZ register on 14-07-2011 to become P4-SDL. See previous blogs at :-
