Two Aerospatiale AS355 F2 Twin Squirrels have arrived for Pacific Aircraft Services at Christchurch.  On the right in the photo is  OK-BIC (c/n 5388) which originally with the Guardia Nacional de Venezuela as GN-8884 followed by a spell as F-WQED before moving to the Czech Republic.

On the left is OK-AIA (c/n 5512) which  is ex F-OHEM and RP-C3552.  OK-AIA is pretty well known in the European film industry as both a photo platform and also a film star in its own rights.

It is expected that OK-BIC will become ZK-HFS4, and OK-AIA to become ZK-HLI6.  Both were bought from Delta System Air.
