Flying in the City of the Angels

This MD369FF needed to be moved from the big smoke to the City of Angels where it could get ready to take flight of a different kind.

We prepped the helicopter in Auckland, where it was then shipped by air freight to Las Angeles on a 747 freighter aircraft.

The MD369FF was then able to spread its wings in the City of Angels before being moved to its final destination, Arizona, where it is now being used for general work and tourism.
