When did you visit NWI?

mazakari 11th Nov 2007 16:09

It's an old picture. Clearing out some old CD's and found one with a few pictures on it, including this one I took of JSAR. It was passing through NWI for fuel. :ok:

During S92 Sim training I had the pleasure of meeting;

A Frenchman whom had a love for "napping",

and, A Belgium that had a very scary laugh,

Great guys, great fun!:D

Old CX must have been the last one in the original Bristow colours having been out on a limb in China. I last flew her on the 8th Feb 2005. Three days later I turned sixty five and I wasn't allowed to fly her any more. I've had to fly Aussie and Chinese 332s ever since.

G-TIGB is now with Bristow in Australia as VH-BWJ.
G-BMCX was flown to Luqa, Malta on 29 Aug 2007 (still in the old colours) and repainted by MedAvia into the new colours. It departed Malta on 14 Sep 2007, and flew to Antwerp (Belgium) and Den Helder (Netherlands) on 15 Sep 2007.
G-BMCX was then photographed at Kalgoorlie, Western Australia on a ferry flight (probably to Perth, WA) on 16 October 2007:
