Ned, thanks for the compliment.

Don't know why, but it never came out as large as I intended. Story of my life.

Nice pics, Beaune is part of my route from Belgium to South of France...

Close to Pouilly, in Semur-en-Auxois (about 10NM NW), their is a chambre d'hote (also small castle). The owner is a R44 pilot.

Is the Pouilly place OK ?

By request from a Mod. A few from over the years:


Sea King HAS2, RFA Sir Tristram SHOL Trial 1986


"Doris", the Boscombe Comms Wessex Mk5 on the Vehicle Deck of RFA Sir Tristram, 1986.
This SHOL trial followed the extensive repair and rebuild of Sir Tristram after she was tragically damaged at Bluff Cove during the Falklands Conflict.


Gazelle Tethered Hover performance testing.


HMS BRAVE, Type 22 Batch 2 from door of Sea King HC Mk.4. First of Class Flying Trials 1991.



Lynx AH Mk.7 Low Speed Flight Envelope testing with Pace Vehicle during WHL/A&AEE Hot and High Testing. Leadville, Colorado, 1987. (North America's highest airport: Elevation 9927').
As an aside, always check the wheel hubs. Early Ford Broncos handle extremely badly when in 3-wheel drive.


Sea King HC Mk.4 cold soak. Snow & Icing Trials, Ottawa 1992.


ETPS Sea King; SHOL Trials on HNlMS ZUIDERKRUIZ, 1990.

Thanks for the pic of the SK on Sir Tristram. I remember it well, in fact the Squadron gave me another pic of the trial when I left. I also did the last flight of Doris, off to Farnborough to be used for engineering training or something.

Cheers
Steve

Hello Steve.

Speaking of memories, I do still recall well the response from an EPNER trained tp to a very green FTO in the LHS of a SHOL trial aircraft who, having completed taking data alongside, had asked him to "Translate across now, please".

"à travers", indeed


I last saw Doris looking sorry for herself in the Farnborough Flying Club hangar several years ago. I wonder if she's still there?

Sorry for the delay in responding.
Yes, the Chateau Saint Sabine is OK. Rooms start at 55 Euros.
Dinner from 30 Euros plus wine. Good food and a superb wine list.

I saw the small castle you mention. It looked very impressive from the air.

Just in case you decide to go to the chateau, here's a picture showing the helipad.



The picture (provided by the hotel) is a little misleading because the pad is hidden by tall trees on the approach.
You can just see the tops in the bottom right of the picture - and they've grown since.
You'd obviously do a high recce first, so no problem.

Camber Castle

Built by King Henry the VIII to defend the coastline I believe, on the East Sussex border.

I went to an airshow at Blenheim recently and saw a fabulous display by an amazing helicopter pilot called David Kenion.

I didn't take these pics but one of our group got hold of them so I thought I'd share them.
I'm a new fixed-wing PPL and don't know anything about flying helicopters but the awesome display put a whole new complexion on helicopters for me!

Thanks Sally.
All your links work now. If [url] appears anywhere in the link, the pics won't show.
