A small team of friends in the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) gathered and put their minds together. Their mission was to build a trolley worthy of gracing the Auckland Domain in the coveted Red Bull Trolley GP.

It was quickly decided that an Iroquois Helicopter - more affectionately known as the Huey - would be the perfect aircraft to base the trolley on. Many long hours were spent perfecting the plans and ensuring the trolley not only accentuated the RNZAF’s high standards, proud values and history, but also complimented the Grand Prix’s motto “Where Genius Meets Ridiculous”.

No idea went neglected in the planning stage and as a result the vast array of features on the trolley is astounding.

The page also includes plenty of photos and footage of the Chickenhawk's amazing run!

Despite not placing on the podium - admittedly speed did not take precedence in the trolley’s design - It was obvious the Chickenhawk had stolen the hearts of many.
The following day, Breakfast TV’s “Sam the Weatherman” even confessed that the Chickenhawk was his favourite.

It has long been Team Chickenhawk's intention to sell the trolley to raise funds for the RNZAF's own charity, the Missing Wingman Trust.

100% of the auction’s winnings will go towards this very worthy cause. This is a seriously cool and unique machine that both Children and Adults can enjoy. It’s extremely stable down hills, and any aviation fanatic will marvel at it's authentic componentry.

It is important we mention, all of the Chickenhawk’s aircraft components are scrap components that were destined for the skip bin. Furthermore, the RNZAF did not provide any funding towards the build. It was driven by a team of friends that are all in the RNZAF, who shared all of the project’s costs at their own expense.
