Third helicopter on third row, the Fenestron background needs correcting. Otherwise an absolute awesome piece of work.

The Welsh 135 is no longer the children’s air ambulance it is used for HEMS one of the 145s does air ambulance and HEMS. Looking awesome

Redland - There are photos on Wales Air Ambulance facebook page of their EC135 showing Childrens markings on the front door ?

I donít think the markings have changed, not certain, but all aircraft are primary HEMS, with one of the 145s doing transfers when required.

Ok so we should just have it on the poster as the EC135 Wales Air Ambulance and leave the Childrens bit off the title.

Think it looks great Ned. Quick thought and by no means a criticism but if you had the SAR machines facing the other way you would see the hoist fits? Although accept it would affect the flow of the whole image. Thanks for compiling.

Yeah we did debate that but would prob look a bit weird. However am open to getting everyones thoughts on this. Would prob do the 2 S92s and the AW189 the other way if we did do that.

Ned,

As you say, it would look weird and not be consistent with the series. Also, TBH, apart from diehard SAR aficionados, does anyone really care much about the hoist fit? Surely, one hoist above a door looks likes like any other?!

Brilliant work, well done!

If those three SAR machines all fit on one line, then I think it could do well to distinguish the HEMS vs. SAR helicopters (and having them face the other direction might not look as out of place), however if they are spread across multiple lines and facing the opposite direction I agree it might ruin the 'flow' of the image. If it isn't much work, it'd be cool to see a quick draft though?

Hello Ned, There is also HM Coastguard AW189 SAR helicopters. (11 Aircraft spread across 5 bases).

Great work as always.

Cheers

Did some playing around with some other right hand side illustrations we had and actually looks wrong with three facing one way and the rest facing the other so going to leave it as it is.

If anyone can see any other issues that stand out - apart from the fenestrom on that one which is being fixed then please let me know.

Out of curiosity - what is the preference for the addition of the Airbus advert? Is it that they are a HeliOps paid sponsor?

Donít know how pedantic you want to be but I believe Great North are now operating 155s as their latest and greatest if you wanted to show the most up to date kit used by each charity.

With that in mind would you add the jet-pack paramedic?

Ned,

What was the registration of the aircraft you think is an EC155?

The last two I am aware of joining them are an AS365N3+ (NHAD) and a N3 (NHAE).

Thatís my fault, I can never tell the difference between an N3 and a 155, I just thought due to the pointy nose they had a new 155
