AW 139 tail....

Thought with all this crap chatter about the 139 tail, we would test the integrity of this old set of tail rotor blades we had laying about in the hangar and for good measure throw in a rogue main rotor blade as well....

Don't know what all the fuss is about... flies purrrfict dunnit






Stay safe out there intrepid 139 drivers....

Awesome paint scheme, A+

rotorrookie,

Yes, a very nice photo but: it is a commercial photo lifted from a commercial magazine with links advertising their product and site

Where in the world is that, how high and all?


Thats my little one at Fjordungsalda (2900'), near the center of Iceland. Mission: radio and mobile phone repeater station maintenance.



Same place, same day. 35 kts, -27C.



My warm cup of coffe sure tasted good up there that day.

It is on Shasta Bally, N40 36.153 W122 39.006 and only 6,125 ft elevation. We had just had a huge snow storm go through the area.

It is the main repeater site for the northern Sacramento Valley.

Here is one I was just sent by my pax as I came to pick them up..
