So are criminals not targeting police, but the civilian owners of the helicopters that the police rent for a while in the hope that the operators will no longer allow the police to use their helicopters?
How obsurd, that law abiding people are scard of criminals, it used to be the other way around, crims would do anyting to stay out of sight of both police and civilian, but then again, non police were encouraged to help fight crime, not cower with their tails between their legs, noa days, if you so much as punch a criminals lights out you're in deeper crap then the criminal is.
If they don't already, why don't the police buy their own helo's, I'm sure they can have the ex airforce Huey's or by some 500's, do they own that dark blue Squirrel in Auckland?

Just a heads-up, I've heard on pretty reliable authority that a Russian helicopter is going to be arriving at Ardmore sometime on Saturday for maintenance work. It might possibly be one of the Mils from Taupo, but I'm under the impression that it could also be a Kamov KA-32 or similar, something not normally seen in NZ. Might be of interest for photography?

Geez, that christmas tree on top looks like an engineers worst nightmare. Tracking and balancing looks like a bit of a challenge, but I guess it is easier than what it looks. Is there any members that can give us a run down on the whirly bits and servicing side.
