1/72 PC-6 Air Glacier

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Here is one of my last built. A PC-6 Porter from the Swiss operator Air Glacier, based in Sion

The kit is high planes, and decals are self produced.

Enjoy,

That looks really nice. For some odd reason the Turbo-Porter has been a favorite for many years. I was so glad to finally get a Roden kit.

Thank you for your comments guys, I will post more build in the future.

Well no James Bond figure ? I have to say not this  time....

Actually, the scene, was made by the Swiss Air Force, where they Jumped from on PC6, and free fall to another one. They did it up to 96 times to get it right. If I remember correctly it was in 95 or 94 at Magadino Air Force base in Ticino.

I like Air Glacier, that remember my old time in Switzerland,

 

Cheers

I believe the Photo of this Swiss Porter was made in the Sahara, when Air Glacier had the coverage the Race Paris Dakar in 1986.

They lost one helicopter during the race with the son of the company owner. A french rock star was on board as well.

Thank you for the info, Philippe. So sad to hear of the tragedy connected with this photo.
