The AW650 that is!

Sheer idle curiosity as I am preparing an article on flying the Wheelbarrow by the excellent Ken FitzRoy, so I wondered if any of you know of survivors that are still airworthy in far flung corners of the globe.

Cheers

Treadders.

No, none flying. None even remotely airworthy either.

Ah, the beautiful April of MAM, fondly known as the 'Whistling Tit'
Spent many a happy hour showing people round the cockpit of her. Kids love it, especially when I tell them she had a female captain at one point. There are always gasps of astonishment I think there are only something like 15 left aren't there? Shame I'll never get to see some of these old aircraft flying
