Cromer/Northrepps 9/6/16

Stopped in while driving by and found

G-ERMO ARV Super 2
G-CDAC EV97
G-CBWJ Thruster

All sat on ground, but with the runway being mown, airfield usually being inactive during the week and Caister Castle car museum being my destination I moved on.

I knew the new SAR helos are being based, but didn't put that together with the new hangar. :roll: Thanks for helping and sharing a bit of knowledge. :)

Re: Serial request 1/7/14 (Yellow rig helicopter)

Thank you very much, another new helicopter operator, guess they will be needing the new hangar that they are building on the airfield. I wasn't far off, read it as OO-MNG. Thanks again.

As you say the small cachement area for the airport would make it unattractive to airlines. As with any spotting trip its a trade off between distance able to...
