HeliEng,

I agree - one of the most impressive things I've ever seen. It only needs one minor improvement - a missile launch pod with a 'U' bend in it!

Awesome piece of kit. I guess when they have finished with it it would be a great Instrument trainer...

Heli chick

What's it like flying the old Schweizer with the wheels on?
(Slow and wobbly, i am reliably informed like most H269's.....hmmm)

Cordova Alaska

Heli-skiing in Cordova, AK...the incredible Chugach mountains.
There are a million forced landing areas down there...of course, they are all bad

Oogle..

Those pictures were taken early 2005 around Trundle NSW during the locust plague. They may have had good rain by now but I'm not really sure as I haven't been back.

If I mighet be so bold to ask, Why do you have two slip and turn indicators and why are the wings not agreeing with the AH, genuine question, not cheek !
As I understand it the turn and slip indicator are to different observations. The ball (slip) indicates where the gravitational force is acting on the aircraft (including an acceleration forces). The turn indicator shows the rate of turn irrespective of aircraft attitude and generated by its own giro. The artificial horizon does exactly as it says, a representation of where the horizon is in relation to the aircraft. The photograph shows the aircraft banking to the right (artificial horizon) and turning to the right (turn indicator) the ball is slightly off centre which is probably due to the aircraft tending to fly slightly less skid low when the tell-tales are indicating a coordinated turn.
C'mon guys!. Stop being so serious and just enjoy the photos.

Those of you who have let the balance ball stray to one side of the glass or the other during a turn - raise your thumbs!
