I don't know what to say.
  • You're still not inserting the code (web address) of an image file on the internet. Read the Instructions.
  • The code doesn't end in either .jpg, .bmp or .gif. Read the Instructions (and my note added to your previous post).
  • The code you have inserted is enclosed by URL boxes. It shouldn't be. Read the Instructions.
  • Read the Instructions - and follow them stage by stage.

Don't give up.
Once you've posted a picture successfully, you'll wonder why you couldn't do it the first time.

Fison's Airwork, BEAS, B.Cal. etc

This picture from Speacless two via http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?t=287883 got me thinking why not include the companies aquired by BHL? They are certainly a large part of what made Bristows what it is. So any Fison's Airwork, BEAS, B.Cal. etc photos & anecdotes pleas add them here too!

Jemy,

There have indeed been many variations on the good old yard of ale. I well remember a course of pilots from a Middle Eastern country doing their command training on the 212 who tried a yard of Guinness - very messy Pastis and tonic was my preference. It's a shame the Training School was closed down as so many good young men and women who passed through it have since done very well both in Bristow and other companies.

Gotta hand it to you, Tail take off. That 61 moon shot's a classic.

Hi moderator - I think I may have got it that time. Thanks if I did! I did read the instructions a million times but don't always understand the jargon ... sorry!

...............as one, a zillion Rotorheads sighed in relief. p.hive has cracked posting photographs. Now where's the rest? Jock Swainson. Over twice my age at the time; loved the guy.

Smile More Eket photos

Salusa, yes SoggyBoxers has already confirmed it's Eric. He's still in Eket.

The first picture yesterday of LZ-CAJ is on the deck of the Ocean Liberator offshore Bulgaria in the Black Sea in 1993.

Great pictures

Hiya, i live just outside norwich airport and work on the airport at a flying club, and i see bristows all the time, and it is very interesting to see the picture of that bell 206 jetranger, the oldest jetranger in the uk is owned by bristow helicopters and is based at Norwich, and do you know a pilot called Dave higgins?
