Could the choppers be towed behind trucks, or pulled by horses???
Who stiffed New Zealand Air Force?
The Air Force brass are scratching their balls after one of their NH90 helicopters was forced to emergency landing near Blenheim on Sunday.
They are still investigating what caused problems to the engine, but decided it wasn’t good news.
They have stopped flights to areas where emergency landings were not possible, including cities, mountains and water.
“The fleet of eight NH90s were ordered by the previous [equally corrupt] Labour government for $771 million in 2006,” said a report.
In 2015 the NZD was unable to take any of its NH90 helicopters to the Pacific Islands after Cyclone Pam because they were considered too difficult to transport and were not yet cleared for “island-hopping”.

WHEN the $95-million helicopter is not banned from flying…
“The NH90 is an advanced medium utility helicopter, capable of undertaking a wide variety of roles. It incorporates new and sustainable technologies and represents a substantial improvement on the Iroquois that will provide the NZDF with a contemporary, highly capable and deployable helicopter. The NH90 will be used for frontline military and civil operations.”
“The NH90 – developed by Europe’s NHIndustries partnership (Airbus Helicopters, Agusta Westland, and Fokker) – was designed to meet NATO’s requirement [gasp for air!] for a modern medium-sized multi-role military helicopter for both land and maritime operations.” http://www.airbushelicopters.com/website/en/ref/NH90-%28TTH-and-NFH%29_52.html

Gang of Youths assault Maori Warden, manager, passengers and smash Auckland train
A gang of 20 or so youths got on the train at Papakura and smashed the train windows on Auckland’s Southern Line in South Auckland late Friday night.
The gang also assaulted the Maori Warden, train manager, and some of the passengers.
“The train’s passengers had to be dropped off at Puhinui Station because the train was ‘munted’, public transport users association spokesman Jon Reeves said.” http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11764167

UNFORTUNATELY, it’s eight years too late!
John Key quits after quadrupling his ill-gotten wealth in eight years while doubling as PM.
John Key has announced his resignation as Prime Minister of New Zealand, citing family reasons for leaving!!
The vampires will hold a meeting next Monday (December 12) to decide the new party leader and Prime Minister.
Key has already endorsed blood-sucking Bill English as his replacement.
“Whoever the caucus votes for will have my unwavering support, but if Bill English puts his name forward then I will vote for him.
“For 10 years now Bill and I have worked closely as a team. I have witnessed first-hand his leadership style, his capacity for work, his grasp of the economy, his commitment to change and most of all his decency as a husband, as a father, a colleague and as a politician.”
Key, calling himself “a commercial guy,” has been promoted by his stable-masters to take up board positions, possibly with companies in Australia.
