From the quite old but loved Iroquois to the flash NH 90...
A No. 3 SQN Bell UH-1 Iroquois NZ3608, entered service in 1966 and currently being replaced by the new NH90
Kaman SH-2G Seasprite NZ3603, entered service in 2001 with No.6 SQN
Agusta A109LUH NZ3402, entered service in 2011, operated by No. 3 SQN to replace the aging Sioux
NHI-NH90 NZ3302, entered service in 2012, also operated by No. 3 SQN
As always thanks for looking.

I always made sure I got a window seat whenever we got a ride in the Iroquois - they fly with the door open! Awesome fun! Probably won't get a chance to fly in the new ones - I don't think we've even got the budget to by their promotional stickersLISA
Canon EOS 600D, 50mm, 18-55mm & 55-250 mm kit lens for the flash stuff.
Olympus Tough 8010, waterproof, shockproof compact P&S - great for the kids.

I really mis the Huey. I have over 3000hrs flying bell's; AH-1 (Cobra)/UH-1(Huey)/OH-58(Kiowa). The Huey was the best overall...that is one durable aircraft. (but the AH-1 was a bit more fun)
