Can anyone recall the story of the North Denes aircraft that diverted form a ground run?
Well, the pilot concerned is certainly a Ppruner, maybe he can recount the tale

Sorry, just got back from a glamorous (not) two day trip. Thanks to Heliport for the help - I did follow the instructions - at least I thought I did, but it got to the point of not wishing to further embarass my self. As 212man insinuates, there is a certain amount of irreversible surgery which takes place when you lurch to the dark side - wait till he gets my age.

Thanks also to Taff for the 204 spot (miss Taff as well- does any one have a photo?) and anyone own up to owning a chopper in Trinidad?

Posting photos on pprune

I think the trouble is that Photobucket have changed the layout of their site since the instructions were written. What you need to do is look below the thumbnails in your albumn and click where it says the words "Direct link" (not the url itself) and it will automatically copy the url ready to paste into the insert image box on PPRuNe.

If you have any more photos keep adding them here!

Thanks.

TOD

PS how is life in the desert?

Deep breath - here are a few more scanned from a dusty archive of slides, lets hope this works!

For 212man, those awful Shell helidecks in Miri, i'm suprised a few wheels didn't fall off, it was a bit of an art to try to wiggle a 330J in between the logs without rolling it over (or at least feeling it would do so).



Pete Cawthorn & AN Other in Duri 1986.



Andy Redfern - Miri 1982



Salt of the Earth in Miri 1981



Another heli/heli lift, this time in Trinidad 1988, Long Ranger had engine failure after crossing the beach, did a great job of ditching it, we put it back, Dave Atkinson (God Bless) was in the back watching it like a hawk for the quick circuit around Galeota Point.




Desert be hot, it 'cooled down' to 37 this morning when I arrived, feel sorry for the Aero Gulf boys.
Regards
TOD

Cool Djambi!

It must have been HBW! And probably between 8 March '72 and 16th when I was in S'pore. After that BW disappears from my log book and BQ replaces it!!

Wow! This borders on the spooky. I decided to look under the stairs; found the old Canon projector and boxes of slides. I haven't seen some of these in 25 years. Plugged in the Canon and the first one ...below... before her little tantrum. More to come, but I'm photographing them off the side of the fridge. There must be an easier way.

From under the stairs ...........
hico-p, Seems you did a better job of putting down Hotel Bravo than we'd thought. You thought fuel drums - I thought logs. You managed to dump her in the only clear space in 50 miles.







PS. Looking at the last one -- you were right about the fuel drums, or was that your load? Well you got it there; what more do they want?

Sorry, these should have been on North Sea thread, I know North Scottish is nothing to with Bristow, I will try to pay more attention next time.




I've moved them for you.

Bristow joins the spying game??

Paul Weddick and Fred Kissinger on a Cricket Pitch near Galeota Point Trinidad, circa 1985, while preparing the BHL spy glider for operations in the area.
Fred is preparing the secret launching device - which actually worked!! Said glider became airborne, turned downwind and then hurtled groundwards in an amazing display of accuracy...... much to the delight of the Trini's settling into their seats for the Cricket Match due to start later......
