Just heading down to a relative’s place on Kerr’s Road, Avonside, to help them repair their roof following the earthquake and passed this helicopter taking off from Porritt Park in Avonside.
Looks like an airforce helicopter doing surveillance and checking out areas for damage. Didn’t particularly look like they had supplies on board. Good luck to them.
We heard yesterday from the police. Apparently there will be police and army stationed in our area from today to stop looters. So sad that these guys have to divert resources from areas that really need them to stop pricks from looting houses.
Update: I’ve been reliable informed by an RNZAF mate (Hi Aaron) that this is a UH-1H Iroquois, flown by 3 SQN, RNZAF.
