Outstanding !
To all,

This is a great thread with so many folks adding pic's. Certainly brings back the memories of times long ago. Reminds me of an old expression my Grandmother used to use, "Ve get too soon old und too late schmart"!
Congratulations to SoggyBoxers on his new little "aviator"!

..... there must be a way of posting the actual photo on the site as above, but I suspect that this is frowned upon.

Heliport, you need to make allowances for TOD: he used to be 'one of us' but sadly had a mid-life crisis and is now an A340 captain! :E

There's something not quite right about the model of G-TIGL.

Could it be the rearward facing pitot tubes? I know they were slow but we usually made some forward progress.

Interesting shot of PK-HBV. Where was that taken? Certainly not Sumatra, its usual home. The aircraft was ex Brunei Air Wing. Note the very innovative position of the HF Antenna, under the tail boom, instead of flapping around sticking out of the front. I know the guy who did that very very well, and it worked a treat even stuck into jungle mud. The spacer was a hand carved teak wedge ordered with ‘approved’ drawings from a furniture shop in Jalan Kayu. :ok:

Interesting shot of PK-HBV. Where was that taken?
Toussus-le-Noble (LFPN) May 1973 I guess on a ferry flight.

The 205 at Piarco is actually a 204B. Either 9Y-TDZ or TEA.

Happy days.

Please keep posting the photos. The addition of a few anecdotes has, however, made this thread all the more interesting. More Please:ok:

Can anyone recall the story of the North Denes aircraft that diverted form a ground run?

Great thread,
Does anyone know what John Ridings is up to now.
I think I last worked with him in the Falklands.
And what about that other real gent, John Hall.
