Helicopter Drama

Postby jonny7 on Wed 26 Oct 2016, 6:58 pm

The last few days have been sublime with the light levels and this morning it was the foggy conditions to render a mini scoop for me. Looking like it was floating in the AW139 with its safety floats all out made a sight for sore eyes, and looking something a bit different from the usual stuff we see! The crew brought her in like it was a well trained drill and safely down, even had time for a laugh.One of the crew reminded me of Rigsby from "Rising Damp", as he might have recalled the past events to the waiting ground crew...

A timely catch!
Wonder if it was a case of 'what does this button do'? :oops:
If a man speaks when he is alone in a forest and there are no women around to hear him, is he still wrong?

Yes that's very true about the timing, and the reason will be chip paper soon I guess... :up:

Many thanks for the interest shown in the set, cheers to Airwolfhound, Vierdryinn and SPLAT. The last shot reminds me of how Leonard Rossiter told stories to Miss Jones... :grin:

The floats look like huge pollen sacks on a bee.

It's not every day you see those floats inflated, you got a real "scoop" on your hands with that set.
