One of CHC Australia's pilots is Mark Hamilton, who took a number of stunning storm photos at Truscott which he was kind enough to share: here are a couple







Mark's website, Mark Hamilton Photography is a testament to his (and his wife's!) ability

I wonder whether he used an old fashioned film camera for those. I used to do it in Borneo years ago. Set the shutter to open/close; open it and wait for the lightning to take it's own picture.

Nice shot of Ozrunways there John. Adding to the SA?
Nice piece of kit. Do you have any issues in the heat?

Well, all those beautiful pictures sometimes make me wish to pack in my fixed wings day, learn to fly those ugly whirly contraptions and then get a job with a view like that...

Keep them coming, i thoroughly enjoy this thread.

OzRunways is a marvellous app, and a great substitute for maps, charts and DAPs. Every pilot should have one!

Yes: no aircon. Me, or the iPad?

Those whacky Instructors .... :8

After continued ragging about my custom made cushion to help get my cyclic hand on the grip I returned from my "pre-lesson nervy pee" to find this .....




Ah, those whacky instructors.

tascats: Is that Bond EC225 being pressure refuelled? I believe this is the first time I've seen this done although I know that some of the EC332/225 family have this provision. How frequent is pressure refuelling performed onshore/offshore? By the way, why is there (apparantly) no one in attendance when a rotors-running helicopter is attached to a refuelling hose?

@Saint Jack
Hi, there are two attending, but didn't want them in shot in case it damaged the camera Unless there's a fault, the 225s are always pressure refuelled here - we don't see that many of them though as they can usually route direct, and we no longer do tea and coffee (sorry guys). The only gravity refuels we'd normally do here are on some of the older Bristow 332 which didn't have the option.

As one of my pics of the "Blue Eagles" has been posted here taken during a photo shoot, I thought you might like to see some more from the same sortie. These were taken on 18th June 1970 from Sioux XT145 operating out of Middle Wallop. Enjoy!
