Haha!

Flightmanuals usually states "Minimum crew is one pilot".

I guess it's finally time to stop lurking and actually post something on this forum. Here are some views from my cockpit while working on my CPL(H) in Oregon, USA.

Downtown Shenzhen, Peoples Republic of China.
In the background is Fan Ling, a dormitory town in Hong Kong.



What the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone would have looked like thirty years ago.

The brackets under the window are for hanging up Headsets and Helmets, and the bracket in the middle is the airspeed limitations and hover ceiling placard.

tet the photo's of Blackhawk 206 were taken at Dili airport in mar 2002 and the sling load was a replacement head or MGB for another Blackhawk can't remember which now and the photos of 105 were taken in Aug 2002 ,105 was my favorite when I was in, I had over 300 hrs in the back of that helo, was the first Blackhawk in the country to run 4 x tanks , flew Townsville to Canberra in one hop and a few other trips ,longest hop I did in that helo was 9.9 hrs take off to landing. I think 105 is the one the Army just spudded into the ground in Timor the other month!!!!(cat 4)

NNB,

I don't think any of the settings have changed - I occasionally get online sessions where several pics don't appear first time. Usually, by scrolling to the post where you expect a pic then re-loading the page (sometimes with 2 or 3 attempts) I get the pic to appear. Keep trying, eh?

Thumbs up AS 332 L1 during SAR operation up North.



AS 332 L1 Super Puma during a SAR mission on the biggest glacier in Europe and around the highest peak on the glacier.




The days in our office are never the same, wich makes this a fantastic job
And sometimes we have big jobs to complete and we need 2 big birds :


Once and a while we demonstrate our operation, like our fellow pilots in Belgium

On the way to the top of Mt Kenya, stuggling for a rate of climb:

Got there in the end (16K). Not me, you understand. A friend of mine did it, then ran away!
