Ports of Auckland spokesman Matt Ball was told the Hawk was the first one in New Zealand. If you see a Black Hawk United States military helicopter flying in New Zealand skies in the near future, don't be alarmed - it's only here to haul logs and pylons. The ship docked at Ferguson Container Terminal, from where the chopper was unloaded and taken to Marsden Wharf. "I was told it's the first Black Hawk in New Zealand," he added. The Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk is a four-bladed, twin-engine, medium-lift helicopter manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft.
