"I kid you not honey...there was a great big orange helicopter in our front yard today"

10000lbs leaves a hell of a dent in the lawn....

IMM

IMM was a pretty machine back when she was still in one piece...



Here's my old girl, before I moved to the East Coast...

Over 24,000 hours and still going strong...

Relaxing & working at Barrow Island WA

I've been pestering my hubby for some photos for awhile. He's finally brought a couple home and agreed I can post them.









Excellent photography by Mick Prentice.
Thanks to John Eacott for hosting them.

The pictures on this thread have made this FW pilot want to learn to fly helicopters!

This was my one helicopter experience to date.

A very, very welcome sight:



Their landing was better than ours!



Take off with 5 POB at 9600ft:

What is tragic in Bloodycrows first picture is where the 76 has landed; Hwy 17, "The Trans Canada", Canada's Super Highway, the only Highway linking Western Canada to Eastern Canada.

I realize I'm ranting, but you would think we could do better than a single lane Highway as our MAJOR AUTOROUTE!

Nothing to do with helicopters, but one of my favourites nonetheless.

The photograph shows a friend of mine flying his Spitfire Mk IX (MH434) during the filming of a television series some years ago.

IHL,

Its not that it's single lane (Just like OZ and NZ) but that the speed limit is 90 kph everywhere!!!
Soooooo easy to get nailed for a ticket. Specially around Winnipeg
Still managed to get from Winnipeg International to Kenora airport in 2hrs flat...

Flying Lawyer - Mark and I were good friends and I shot him in the P-40 just before he left Kiwiland and went back to the UK, about a month before he was killed in the Buchon.

407, I think you should post them pics. I heard that there was a company doing heli-skiing in the Himilayas with 407's. At a mere 5,000 (metres that is).

Cheers

Not your father's Huey

These are my baby pictures. Worked on her for the last 2+ years. She's not your average 412: Higher power PT6s with FADEC, Full glass cockpit, NVG, 4-Axis, full SAR, etc.







Yeah, that's FLIR on the copilot's inboard display. You can also show it on the pilot's side, or mix FLIR, Radar, or EGPWS with nav overlays. (The RDR-1600 search/weather radar, TCAS, and EGPWS is fully provisioned but not installed on this one.) She's also about 200lb lighter than an equivalently equiped 412EP.
