These were taken by my father in the late 60's onboard RFA Sir Galahad while it was on the way down to Rockhampton, Australian from Kluang, Malaysia, he was in the REME with the AAC.

The first two are Army Air Corps Westland Scouts, the white skids are because they carried the Umpires during the exercise.



These two Scouts were being off-loaded at Port Alma, Rockhampton.



These two pictures were taken during the exercise, the first one is a Scout getting an engine change


This last one is of a AAC Sioux getting its rotor head and shaft removed

Thought maybe I'd revive this thread with a few shots I've taken over the last couple months:


Aris S-58ET. Former H-34G. Supporting trials for Space Elevator Games at Edwards


Sharp AS-350. Owned by Helo4Hire. Tug and trailer are painted the same color as the AStar


Mediplane's Bell 407. Notice the ground air-conditioning cart


This Bell 204 hasn't moved in at least 2 years


Flight Research's Hughes 369HS (500C). Used to belong to Al Hansen, of Greenland B-29 recovery fame


Flight Research's Sikorsky S-55. This is the old Orlando Helicopters demonstrator. Unusual in that it's an S-55A, but has the R-1300 engine, like an S-55C



Northwest Helicopters' MD-530FF. Former Chilean Army H-193. Was supporting the climber cable for the Space Elevator Games at Edwards AFB last week. Replaced the Aris S-58T

Nice shots!

I especially love the Aussie Black Hawk shots, Jeff (little bit biased?? lol). I got buzzed by one several times, coming over slow and verrry low into Enoggera Barracks today!
