Final Tour for Hueys

Final Tour for Hueys


Royal New Zealand Air Force, May 07, 2015 - The Royal New Zealand Air Force’s fleet of Iroquois helicopters has provided almost 50 years of service to New Zealand and has been a stalwart of Defence Force operations since its purchase.

The Iroquois is scheduled to cease flying operations with the Air Force on 01 July 2015.

Ahead of this withdrawal from service, No.3 Squadron from Ohakea who fly the Iroquois are making various stops around New Zealand in May.

The Iroquois is being replaced by the NH90 helicopter, which provides a significant step-up in the capability the Defence Force can provide to New Zealand.

To preserve the importance of almost 50 years of history for the aircraft with the Defence Force, one airframe will be transferred to the Army Museum at Waiouru and two airframes to the Air Force Museum in Christchurch for public display purposes.

The June issue of Air Force News magazine will have a feature on the Iroquois.
