All those helis in one place gives you a nice warm feeling, doesn't it? Here's a silly question: what type is G-PLMI in the second pic down?

Great photos Alan!

I was looking at that one too! Don't you think it look a bit like the HeliTorque site!! It's quite a cool looking paint scheme except that it might get a bit camouflaged in the sky!

According to G-INFO, it's a Dauphin. An SA365C1, the only one on the UK register. I don't know if it's the angle of the photograph, or that type variant, but to my mind, Dauphins have much longer noses!


Once again, awsomely fantastic pictures, Alan! Can you confirm that the fourth photo down, the Twin Squirrel, is G-EMHH?

James Twin Squirrel, is G-EMHH as below and the Dauphin. An SA365C1 operate out of Scotland. There are a number of variants with a flat long nose inparticular the Irish and coast guard variants.

17 passenger gates operating from 0630 to 0800 over 1500 movements recorded up to 1800 Sunday. Very expensive landing fees ??350 for a A109/AS355 orB206.










This was a quite moment in the holding patten at one point there were 10 helicopter in the sky and 6 in the hover awaiting a free gate.











20,000 literes of fuel pumped on Sunday:

Great to see G-TELY, which featured on the Flying Gardener programme on TV a while ago. Lovelly machine.

My god, there are some great photos in that lot there!!!! Well done! What camera did you use for those?

I don't see any 22's there though.

I wonder what the crack is with going to that event by heli? I bet it's expensive. I'd love to have landed there though, with all those lovelly machines.

The photos of some of the machines doing really impressive take-off's too, is really something. Looks like the pilots had a superb day out.

I wanna go Smile

Adam.

Camera : Nikon D100 with a Sigma 50-500mm lens, although a short lens up to 200mm would have been just as good.

Landing fees can be found on: http://www.eventdirectaviation.co.uk/terms_conditions.htm this is heh company that organise the heliport and allocate landing slots. You have to attend a mandatory Pilots Briefing held at Silverstone on the Monday before the event. Special conditions apply to the use of helicopters with an AUW of 1000Kg or less hence only one R22 in the visitors parking area.

Nice pics, good to see the boys from Air Harrods there with the 76 and 109. The old C series Dauphins are not the nicest looking model of Dauphin and am surprised they are using one for corporate work. I know Heli Air Monaco still have one running between Nice and Monaco but thats about all I have seen out there.

Must have been a few dollars tied up in helos on that day.

G-PLMI is as pointed out a Dauphin C Model which was the forerunner of the N Model. The reason why the N has got a longer nose and the Ec155 an even longer nose is that they have a weather radar hiding underneath, that is my educated guess.

Well our N's have a wether radar hiding there in any case.

Why is it still flying, well why not they are rather usefull with being able to load 9 passengers at once.

Excellent Photos looks like afabulous day was had by all.
Once you are there and have awalk round you will be blown away by the money which is lying around in all forms.
