This little Hughes was
acquired by National Art Metal Co Pty Ltd (Namco) in April 1966 from
its original owner and importer International Helicopters. Greg
Banfield's shot was taken a couple
of months later in August 1966. Location was
Bankstown. Kevin Murphy had taken the photo
at the foot of the
page during the prior month.
Like several others of its type imported into
Australia, VH-IHN was later sold in New Zealand, ostensibly
as ZK-HDI although in the event
was cannibalized and the
parts went into ZK-HBE.
