Here is another small helipad.





Here is another one but not built to last, it broke 30 minutes after landing there, lucky me, blades were stopped and the aircraft ended up sitting on the stinger, not a scratch. The pad was the right size with the right number and size of logs but they were too widely spaced. That was my fifth time landing there and shutting down.
That's me on the roof calling the Astar working with me.
Flew back to camp afterward with the Astar to get the AME and a couple of fallers, We cut the logs slowly, one by one to get the ST to come down almost level. got it going and left.



Close up of the broken log

Refuelling the diesels at a mountaintop radio site. 12 minute turns. It took a while....



A bit turbulent if you fly in the wrong spot otherwise 35 kts is smooth as silk



Gotta love the Cold War infrastructure. Leftovers now used by the phone system

Bell 407 in the Pacific Islands...

Recent pics with a new camera...

For those interested, Canon 1Dx mk2 with Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS
This camera is at a whole new level to my previous bodies, which included a 1 series.

Hi Nick funnily enough here are my photos of N492SA when it made appearance at IWM Duxford for Helitech 2003.
