These Schweizers really are stripped to the basics! Nice little craft though.
I think I've been spotted.
This Schweitzer was used to spray a glasshouse in Hegelsom.

The 3-seat Schweizer 269C or Hugues 300 first flew in 1969, and still remains in production. This one, delivered in 2005, was doing some autorotation training at Whiteman that day.
The most colorful helicopter I have ever seen.
Used for training future helicopter pilots at The Flying W.
