Bristow History

Dave Ed has done a brilliant job over the past months in posting many interesting articles on the many operations that Bristow Helicopters has been involved in since their first early days right up to the present.

I'm sure I'm not the only one here that has been totally absorbed with reading about all the different operations that have been covered and all the characters (some legendary within the company) that have been mentioned and appeared in photo's. Different operations that before were just places and names on the monthly "Slave List" mean a lot more now!

I don't know if you've finished yet Dave but thanks for all your hard work

Ninian Central











A few pics I took whilst working in ATC on the Ninian Central, sometime between 1/1980 & 3/1982. The ATC cabin is the white hut at the far side of the helideck.

I suppose that this thread will die, sometime, it would be a pity that all this information will be lost, it's a pity it can,t be made into a book or something.

It could become a 'sticky', depends what the Mods think. When I can get to the box I have a few from Duri - 1968 to scan and add.

I have the all the pictures on USB sticks, CDs and hosted on Photobucket but the depressing speed technology evolves nowadays all these things probably won't be around in ten years time. Even the JPEG format will probably be a thing of the past.


I am countering this increasing speed in our lives by growing trees from seeds and watching them grow whilst sipping a cold beer under endless Cyprus blue skies

Haven't seen that photo of G-TIGK before - it will be supporting the 1994 JMC exercise, I believe. Richard Taylor and I are in the front, Tudor Davies and Bill Deacon (RIP) are in the back.

The aircraft was very skillfully ditched a few months later, following a lightning induced loss of tail rotor, by LS and CR. Shortly afterwards, a (spoof) company memo appeared stating that as research had shown that 75% of accidents and serious incidents in the recent past had involved beareded crews, pilots were to henceforth report to work clean shaven...

A 76, a couple of bars and the final pics from the original site.






































.....and one from John Odlin's scrap book....





That wraps up the all the pics and info from the original Skyweaver site. I do have some other stuff to post when I get around to it and one of my Bristow Redhill "operatives" has managed to get his hands on a few negatives......................?

I know it's technically a RW thread but has anyone got any pics of the Bristow BN2 Islamders?

BKFN boarding pic, taken from a story in today's HBJ on a new O&G market study, highlighting "that helicopter providers are beginning to introduce a new-generation of medium-class helicopters."



Back to the future, Marty!

Yes, to lose this would be a shame. I was never a Bristol. Guy but I have so enjoyed the pictures and history.

If you're done, then I'll start, Dave.

I have been putting up a lot of stuff on Facebook, but will start downloading them for here. What is the best photo site to use to post here?

Phil

If they are already on Facebook you may be able to use the images from there. Just right click the images, & copy the images URL. Then paste that into the image link pop up.

Otherwise Photbucket works well as an image hosting site.
