How about a pic of the Hughes that is in the background of this pic
The plane was blocking, unfortunately, but if I spot it again, I'll take a photo. :)
From my experience .. if you are able top take a pic of a Hughes 300 .. do it even if its a k@k pic .. these choppers tend to operate from remote areas and are under represented in pics for that reason

See how many of those Hillers you can find pics of .. excluding ZS-RCB which I photographed and has since been exported
There were also plenty of other ZS Hillers in years gone by ...but not too many pics

Is it possible to obtain a copy of this collection from somewhere? I mirrored the collection on http://www.villadcocos.com/BeckerPics/, but the ones you've posted are of higher quality.

They all come from that website - I open them and then copy the pic. If they're a bit fuzzy or not such good quality then a bit of processing takes place :) :)

Sorry if I'm being thick, but this is the image I get for ZS-RAE. I can see there are 7 in the collection, but only this one is available online.

ZS-JHH - this is the second time I've spotted this one and still one of my favourites when it comes to the colours.
