Hey VF was that harbour bridge visit on Saturday afternoon? Sitting watching my daughter's cricket match at Waverton Park (just off to the left of your picture) I noticed a Bell looping around - a bit different from the usual R44s - and thought to myself 'I wonder if that's VF?'

VF,

You must have gotten the only non-rain days in Sydney for the last little while !

EXY - owned by a very nice chap who also has a 407. It's a nice machine and well looked after by Billy and his boys at BK Helis.

I look at your pics, with great flying, amazing scenery, happy wife (happy life) and simply wonder what would possess you to want to come back to boring old Australia !

Good on you. Keep living the dream.

Remain clear of Australia, where GA is being beaten to death.

VF,

The days of 409 - best remembered by the weekend warriors in a 22 making traffic calls - quite often accompanied by the Low Rotor Horn in the background!!

Smile A change of scenery

Well look who's in town! Nice timing VF, January the wettest month in Siderley for 30 years.
And, just for the record, I always wait for the R22 low rotor RPM horn to mute before making radio calls.
