S76 shell for Film

Hi Guys,

Anyone got any leads into the shell of an S76? Can be damaged, in fact damage is encouraged, its for a crash scene in a film..

Thanks!

Simon

Simon, if you have any budget you can buy an S76 extremely cheaply at the moment and crash it however you want!

What he says about buying is probably true, then sell on the parts not required, as an example

I'm glad that the stereotype of helicopters appearing in films only to crash is being perpetuated.
Whenever I see one I count the seconds before it crashes, it's often not long. Sometimes I'm surprised and the protagonists get out safely, only for the helicopter to crash behind them on takeoff.
Hopefully you'll be able to add the Huey sound effects too!

The helicopter has been suffering abuse at the hands of Hollywood producers for decades. It needs to stop. We really need an industry representative on any set with a helicopter to prevent helicopter abuse, like the animal people. There should be a disclaimer at the end of the movie, too: "no helicopters were harmed during the making of this film".

Don't forget the sound off a turbine winding down coming in to land or winding up taking off

Argh. I see you are avoiding confrontation with the Robbie crowd by not suggesting the R44 soundtrack when it crashes.

Want to go to South Africa to pick one up? Maybe one there and could possibly be a serviceable one too.

Pretty sure I recently saw a C model advertised.

EagleCopters in Alberta are parting out 76s and recently disposed of an airframe to a paintball park. I'm sure other airframes will be available there before long

Try Big Sky Aviation in Palm Beach Florida. They have 2 stripped airframes just sitting in their lot.
