Northland EMS S76s gain long-range tank from tsunami write-off

Northland EMS S76s gain long-range tank from tsunami write-off 27 Jun, 12,

Northland Emergency Services Trust bought an S76 which had been written-off following the 2011 tsunami in Japan.  It has proved much more profitable for re-usable spares than they imagined, the latest item put to use being a long-range tank.    Valued at NZ$224,000 new, the tank comes from the insurance-rejected shell they bought for just NZ$30,000.  Various other parts have been recovered and some sold – for NZ $43,800 thus far.  Let’s hope the person who identified this spares source for NEST was given a good bonus!  (see full story)
