I've heard that the London Explorer is in maintenance rather often as the pilots yank the guts out of it. After this video I'm tempted to believe it!

I remember that incident well. I used to cycle through High Street Ken on the way to work every day and I think that was the only sliver of tarmac without any road furniture. Most of the street is cycle racks and lamp posts. To be even able to get in there was amazing.

I doubt that, flying a departure like that would yank the guts out of an explorer.

Looks like quite a sedate Class 1(ish, I don't know their profiles) departure.

I think the explorer is on maintenance a lot because its an explorer, and the environment they operate it in, is not always friendly to it and MD keep issuing ADs relating to the type (i think its been a while since a serious one was issued though).

I guess that kind of stuff is sandard fare for London HEMS. Nice work if you an get it.
