I think I've discovered a new (to us) defunct airline!
Hercules Airlines Ltd was incorporated 4 May 1984 with registered office in Auckland, New Zealand. The company was struck off the register as of 3 February 1992. See https://www.nzlbusiness.com/company/struck-off/Hercules-Airlines-Limited
In between those dates, Hercules operated three Bristol freighters, including ZK-EPD, according to World Airline Fleets News, September 1987. There is no further detail as to the type or MSN, but there are several pictures on the Internet, including this one of ZK-EPC: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-QrAVs68Vm4E/TsNkHazlfoI/AAAAAAAAEP8/UkkcaEsvdb8/s1600/19861102+EPC+NZAR+Hercules+Airlines+S+Lowe.jpg
ZK-EPD is also pictured in camo paint and natural finish with RNZAF markings. The third Bristol was apparently ZK-EPB, also pictured in RNZAF camo paint.
A little more research (if anyone is interested) would probably turn up the msns etc but that's as far as I got today.
here are the three Bristol aircraft:
I'm not seeing the Hercules ownership for ZK-EPB ??? Perhaps that's yet to be added.
Because according to three sources it never went on to Hercules Airlines. It was scrapped pretty soon in 1978...
