Launch sinks near Mayor Island today


Recommended Posts

A life raft firing a flare was sighted by helicopter crewman around 2.09pm and the helicopter was joined on the scene by an NZDF King Air.

First time I've heard mention of an NZDF King Air, what are they all about? cheaper form of fisheries patrol to save the Orions?

The sensor suite, that will be permanently fitted to two KA350s, consists of an Electro-Optic and Infra-Red camera and a single array multi-mode surveillance radar. The sensor suite will be utilised for sensor operator training.
