G-RODS

.
Formerly G-NOEL and prior to that G-BCWN this Alan Mann supplied 206 was once flown by PPRuNers Long Box and Paco. With Paco, according to Dennisimo, the cyclic came off in his hand while performing the full freedom of movement check prior to start-up!

Another PPRuNer involved with this craft was TRC who helped transform the ship from BCWN to NOEL.

As an aside, the last recorded commercial movement at Heston Aerodrome (a 'farewell flight' for CAA staff) was performed by this craft on 6th June 1978 when she was G-BCWN.
