View Full Version : National Safety Council of Australia DVD

12th May 2010, 10:03
Greetings All,

Firstly an introduction:

I am a retired Flight Service Officer (remember them) employed by Air Services Australia and their predecessors between 1970 and 2001.

My present interests include aviation history and as such I am a member of the Aviation Historical Society of Australia.

AHSA has been requested to assist in producing a DVD to be distributed by Vicorian Government to all year nine students in Victoria.

Having done a couple of thousand words on Boeing in Victoria and Air Ambulance, I am now in the process of doing something on the late lamented NSCA.

If anyone is interested in assisting with this project I would really appreciate it. I have some photos but need more (where did all those slides of the yellow choppers that I took at Moorabbin go?) I have also received a preliminary fleet list from another AHSA member and with his permission I will upload that.

I hope that there will be some assistance available from you folks. I am still smarting from the response that I got from another blog with an interest in the organisation mentioned.

What: these yellow helicopters? ;)


You may also get some more responses from asking on Rotorheads?

Hi there. Not sure if you're still interested but this website may help:

Catch Me Network - "Taking into Account" (http://catchmenetwork.ning.com/)

As an aside, many years ago I read a great book about the NSCA.
I think it was called "Rescue" and covered around a dozen of the NSCA's most dramatic rescues.

I'm keen to track down a copy.

If anyone knows the actual name and author I'd really appreciate it.
