Not being a chopper fundi, I probably have this wrong. ZU ROC looks like a Eurocopter to me, so how come it's on the ZU register ?

Eurocopter acquired aerospatiale so much like squirrels are now labeled as airbus it is a Eurocopter gazelle, though purists would probably be offended.
Technically we could now call it an airbus gaz, that would really freak the grease-lovers out.
