This thread has certainly brought back fond memories of my stint with Bristow from the mid 70s to early 80s. Here are some of my photos:

2. PK HBK lifting a Schlumberger unit - Duri 1978



3. PK HCC - Duri 1978



4. PK HBK on a winching exercise. Duri 1978. Winch Operator is Mike Grinstead. Photographed by Arty Rochwiyanto

Iran and Brent

Wow, some great photos posted here today. SAS, been digging around in my drawers (no, the other ones, not my soggy boxers ) and found a few. I'll scan some more another day:
I've got some more, flying ones from Prakla somewhere, which I'll look out. 1978, Prakla Iran:

Also in Iran, Kharg Island, just before an ill-fated flight to remove a flare boom tip, which resulted in the tip hanging on to the top of the tower by just one bolt!

Treasure Finder 1983:

Brent 1983:

A Brent sunset:

This was the state-of-the art cockpit for the LN450 SAR 212s which Bristow developed in cooperation with Louis Newmark and was the precursor for the LN400 system in the SAR 61s.

We did a lot of SAR training and responded to quite a lot of SAR callouts considering it was a secondary task. Helicopters were on 15 minutes call to HMCG 24 hours a day:

Bristow used to do servicing and modifications to Yugoslav police Bell 212s. I had a few comments from Gatwick controllers when doing ILSs into Gatwick with a YU callsign and a British accent:



We also did some main gearbox overhauls for Okanagan Helicopters. I delivered this one to Liverpool docks for shipment back to Canada:



This was the S76 being prepared for the film "The Fourth Protocol':



Engine-offs were fun in the snow (well. okay, they were always fun ):



It's always a bad idea to let 2 flying instructors go off for a session of engine-offs together :



Anybody remember the "Chief Barking Instructor' (staff number K9) who used to get taken for 'walkies' by 'Spanners' on many a lunchtime?:



Here's the original Bell 412 demonstrator which came over for the 1988 Farnborough airshow, then went up to North Denes on a trial for Amoco. I flew with the Bell pilots to familiarise them with the helilanes:

You will no doubt have seen this at www.skyweaver.co.uk but here it is again


Ref your earlier question Simon Hornsby was last heard of at Lee-On-Solent and featured in some of the TV series "Seaside Rescue". However as the Lee contract is ending he will no doubt be back in Aberdeen or Den Helder soon if not continuing at Lee with CHC.
