SAAM volunteers loaded a Bell 206B Jet Ranger II donated by Hartwig Aviation at Parafield for transport to SAAM today 5th July. The donation was a legacy of Paul Daw, who facilitated it with Hartwig. This video shows Mark of Adelaide Heavy Haulage loading the aircraft at Parafield.
The aircraft, while incomplete, includes many parts SAAM will need to complete its Kiowa display when that aircraft is received from Defence Disposals (the acquisition is pending completion of a Deed of Transfer and payment to Defence). Our thanks to Hartwig Aviation for the donation and Adelaide Heavy Haulage for the transport.
