Is that a 500 in the first pic? Not many of those around if it is!

Oooh only a 4-blade and V-tail - the sexy beast has 5 up and the whale tail for total super coolness (and I have flown one! The BEST hour going that was..)

couldn't stop and drool as was doing hours on type for b206, took those as i walked across the apron - you should have heard it though - cue movie sound effects please, Very Happy

it was cool to watch it in the hover next to the 22 and see how nimble it was, the rotorhead seemed to be cemented to the fuselage as you couldn't really witness disc movement relatively.

As for the chinook (or however you want to spell it) i was sat in the right seat starting up as my FI and our 'observer' looked back down the runway saying things like 'look at that' and 'see how close that was' etc etc all i saw was as the pic shows Rolling Eyes i'll catch the next one to do a touch and go on the ILS Crying or Very sad

Your pic (of G-TVEE) Jen, shows a Hughes 500 [369 - Allison jet engine] (model HS) which has a 4-blade M/R and a V-tailfin rather like on the H300 [269 - the piston engined trainer.]
The Hughes 500D and 500E have a 5-blade M/R and a whale tail (fin) which which you can just make out in Animalsticks pix as a silhouette against the sky. Against my better judgement (for factual reference), there are 3 pix here from Wiki showing your type, the 500D (smooth nose, the E has a pointy nose) and a Notar.

Is there a challenge here to spot the Chinook AS? There is a large plank in the 4th picture from what I can tell.. (Hehe - just found it !!! Smile )

All is explained! Very Happy For a helicopter that was built the same year I was, it's still not a bad looking bit of kit!

But, PW and FF... Basically you are really saying that, although it was good in its' time, the 1974 model has now been replaced by newer, more powerful and sexier models, which offer more performance and altogether a better ride? Yes?

Running costs and reliability; I bet the previous owner could tell us a thing or two about that... Probably crippling.

Trouble with these old bags of nails from the mid-70s is that they slap on a fresh coat of paint and it can cover up all sorts of age-related damage and hangar rash. Could well be completely shagged out, although the photo looks nice in this instance.
