The New Zealand Defence Force and the Department of Conversation have teamed up to move the Mt Fell Hut in the Richmond Ranges, which was in proximity of a slip.
Luckily the NZDF did more than just talk about it

Beautiful shot of NH90 - though anything would look good in that scenery

Good to see the airforce making their staff a bit more employable in civvy street when they leave...

Multi engine, IFR, etc is all well and good, but most jobs in NZ require slinging ability, and a bit of practice on a line never hurt.
