This thread is totaly awesome. Discovered it by accident and I'm still here 5 hours later! I feel like trading in the A320 for something rotary.

Not French - but Portugese, that's what G-INFO says about G-DEFY

Based in Lisbon - got to go out there just to take a look!

Blender or others ,

What's the tail mounted camera gear on the 407 used for? It's obviously specialised stuff but what do they do with it?

cheers

Because I try to keep this as a pictures thread as much as possible, and because I thought it was a good question which deserved a thread of it's own and might be of general interest.

Arrow January's Desktop Calendars

I am looking to see if the calendar fits the different resolutions in your screen, especially if the widescreen users think it looks OK in their computers. If everything goes OK I will work on more calendars with the other pictures I have recieved.

I will try to add a couple more before the end of December

Please tell me if you like the new way of setting up the days in the calendar of you prefer the old way.

And Sasless & BigMike, I promise that as soon as I get a chance I will make a calendar with the hangar staff!

BP,

The 1680 x 1050 works fine for me, cheers. Not too sure about the change of calendar layout, but it should work as long as it doesn't interfere with a cluttered desktop.

Thanks for your efforts, I look forward to the final offering

G-DEFY is owned by a Portuguese, Pedro Silveira, the Managing Director of Heliportugal, and a very wealthy man, most of his money coming from property. I believe his wife is French and he spends a lot of time there. The boat may be French or Portuguese - the French flag may well be merely because it is visiting a French port, as is normal.
Pedro Silveira and his company are also mentioned on the What's New In West Africa thread on this forum; they're presently leasing a Dauphin SA365N and an Ecureil AS350B2 to Caverton Helicopters in Nigeria.
It's a pretty simple exercise to land the helicopter on the yacht. In most cases helicopters landed on relatively small yachts such as this are only flown to or from the yacht when it's moored in calm seas or alongside in harbour. They're merely kept there for use when the yacht is in port and having them tied down like this enables them to be taken around to wherever the owner is next sailing. This is probably true of Pedro Silveira as he likes to fly himself.
