Re: What Type of Helicopter was I flying on?

Hi..
if its was out of Teesside then deffo a Sikorsky S-58 with a possibility of it being G-BCDF or G-BCTX, as they seem to be the more common ones based for a while in the mid late 70s..

I remember well in my early years going up to watch these beasts coming and going...

Hi Martin..

Great report.. I'm very interested in the two Skyvans.. but being a photographer, was wondering where these two park and if they are on for a shot?? Being from the north east and not been to Brize for a few years, didn't want to make the effort and not get any shots...

Cheers
