Wiking Helikopter Bell 206L - Falco Rock Me Amadeus offshore vid

In 1985 the late Falco performs classic Rock Me Amadeus live on an oil platform off the German coast and ferried by Wiking Helikopter Bell 206L3/4. Out of curiousity how far rig be from the German coastline and by todays standards this would be unfathaomable (forigve the pun) as it be strictly twin engine op, unless it is the GoM.

Looks like the "Schwedeneck" rig north of Kiel in the baltic sea. It was close to the shoreline and Wiking operated a Longranger out of Kiel Airport at that time.

Wandering around under a teetering headed disk winding down, large groups dancing around with their backs to a running aircraft - what could possibly go wrong?
