Is the rumour about a new owner true?

Not a rumour, but fact.

I understand it's only the 'hangar queens' which have been moved.

This is not possible because,

Aircraft are landing, aircraft are taking off.
and,

I heard they were heading for a hangar at Fairoaks...!
unless its unserviceable, why the heck would you put an S76 on a low loader instead of flying it from Blackbushe to Fairoaks?

I heard the one(s) being moved by road had been 'robbed' of parts.

A low loader probably costs less than employing one of those S76 freelance pilots...

According to Farnborough-aviation-group.co.uk - Login (Blackbushe thread) it was VONA, VONB and VONE in addition to VONC.

Haven't seen them at Fairoaks yet but that's only because I haven't had a nose around the Hangars today!
I did however see the aircraft mentioned moving up the M3 on low loaders towards Fairoaks undercover of darkness on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Very sad.

A little bird informed me some time ago that Premiair had lost their credit rating with some spares suppliers.

Obviously, this was just a rumour back then. But obviously, if an aircraft is serviceable then it would be flown to a new owner/buyer, rather than ignominiously stuck on a low-loader and driven away in the dark.

Rumour is the new owner is Goodwood based. If they move there and with Starspeed already gone, what will happen to that hangar?

It will probably be up for rent/sale/redevelopment.

The auctions would soon fill the hangars with cars!

One must wonder if a certain S-76 in a nice maroon paint scheme will need to go looking for a new base.

When I raised a question in that area the response was -

... nothing to do with PremiAir (other than occasionally borrowing pilots).
So if that answer is correct then the maroon heli should be just fine.

Maroon S76

Maybe Mr Graham Avery (whoever he may be) has done a deal with Brenda?

Here's a bit about Mr Avery.

How the jute scam was masterminded
