Buzzing the Control Tower at a military airfield in a Hollywood film is a far different thing than what is discussed here.....whatever it is that is being discussed as that still seems to be in doubt.

If the alleged incident has already been reported to the relevant authorities, it seems pointless to post about it on this forum.

Is that because its a fact rather than a rumour?

How to make a 139 look small

The AW139 is not a small helicopter... but a 142-m (466-ft) yacht can sure make it look like one. Impressive footage from Tom van Oossanen of the Nord

"Novogradnja 487" aka Ultramarine / Quark Expeditions

I hope you are being sarcastic - probably the worst configuration possible.

On the Quark Expeditions website it looks as if it has two helidecks, one aft and one midship, looks as if the hangar is in between the two helidecks, and they plan to have two aircraft.

See here, looks so fancy in 3D



Fortunately they place the right one behind... but the second hangar opening force the use of that in the middle too.



H145 D2 type
Just wondering what Starspeed people thinks about all that?

In the 3D rendering, that second hangar opening does not appear to be as useful as one might hope.

Some pools on super yachts can be transformed to helipad by building a movable floor that drains water and raises when it’s time to land.
In this case, they may consider to built movable H structure which can move at last 6-8 m out exposing the TLOF area...during the calm weather conditions only.
