Quite right.
But being the generous chaps we are, we don't mind fixed-wing types visiting.

Talking

B47 and exrotarybooty,

Piccie of XT132 was taken at RAF South Cerney, then home of CFS (H) and CFS Basic, who own the Provost T1 in background.

Wrong Hangars for Middle Wallop.

Anyone remember the RAF team "The Tomahawks" ?
Flew the Sioux HT3 for a short while around the end of the 60's. Piccie of them would be nice..............................

Cool Seasonal extremes

Whilst Europe & Canada are suffering extreme bushfires, the Victorian Alps have had one of the best snowfalls in decades, not only a good depth, but genuine powder snow, almost unheard of in Oz. Temps down around -6C for a week, so we haven't done a lot of flying on our skier shuttle operation: here's our helipad at Falls Creek, it took two Kassie's an hour and a half to level it off for us to use when the snow eased off!



I was lucky enough to have a client want to go skiing, so the B206 was roped in to take him and I for a few hours on the slopes: this is our 6000ft AMSL roof top pad, complete with JetA1 refuel facility:

Ah! I did wonder about "this is our 6000ft AMSL roof top pad" when only the top pic appeared!

Many thanks for your help resizing bigger pics for us John.

For the appropriate fee, I'm sure they'd say nothing !

..If they react the way the Greek Cypriot National Guard did in 1974, you won't see them for dust...

Puma J's

DC,

What, where, when?

I believe one of them is no more. But it could be a rumour.

Nothing to do with helicopters, but I thought this NASA photograph of a sonic boom was interesting.
