Classic Flyers NZ

I usually go to the local museum when I'm home each Christmas.

What was interesting was the 5 RAF Wessex helicopters they have acquired, not a type I knew had made it to NZ. from what I read online these machines were used for logging operations here for a while but are no longer airworthy (AFAIK). I'm not sure what the plans are
