VH-UTK    Bell 47D-1                                       (c/n   46)

                                    Here's another early Bell of Helicopter Utilities Pty Ltd seen above carrying a load of steel at
                                    Mascot in December 1967.   Below, the same machine was at Bankstown, four years earlier
                                    in December 1963.  Both photos by the indefatigable Greg Banfield.    This very early 47-D1
                                    was built as N192B and exported to New Zealand in the 1950s as ZK-HAG.        Severely
                                    damaged at Warkworth in January 1958 it was shipped back to the USA and repaired.    It
                                    was then sold in Australia as VH-UTK.   It was withdrawn from use in October 1973
