  • Project UH/LUH watch.(AC)

    This has the potential to get out of hand,but lets see how it goes anyway. Within the next few weeks we can expect to see more and more of the condenders for the LUH/UH tender visiting baldonnel to be evaluated.
    If you see something that may fit the profile,feel free to post it here.
    However it being loud and unusual does not automatically make it military.
    Try to ID it if you can,it may be one of Abbyshrules Black helis after all and we do not want details of their movements being publicised.

    I heard that Abbyshrules Blackhawks were grounded after some cracks were found on the airframes.

    However, lookout for the XH-97 filling in.
    Meh.

      Here, if your passing the don' bring a (decent) camera with ya. It would make the whole process a lot easier than trying to describe it.

        Turk has to stick his oar in here and ruin every bodies plans by sayin that a decent camera is going to mean a 135 type SLR[not self loading rifle], or digital equivalent, with a 300 mm [or better] lens.
        Nothing average there!
        For those of you not so afflicted, write down as soon as possable, everything you can remember about the said helicopter; height, attuide, general shape, size, [best guess] colour, any markings present.



        This assumes that this is not a Goldie-style wind-up.:D :D :D

                This is likely to be nothing but I seen what I think were 3 EC145s in Antrim. They were green like the German police helis.

                  I was talking to an Air Corps officer recently and he recond that the Heli's weren't coming here but we were going to them to test them.

                    Just saw 2 Blue EC-135's in loose trailing formation over Naas, flying -roughly- towards Baldonnel. I couldnt get any registration and for all I know they were on their way to a race meeting, but there were two flying together which was interesting.

                    Unfortunately my 135 SLR with 300mm lens wasnt to hand (I'm not taking the piss Turkey )

                    PS: A question - is the EC-635 being offered at all? Basically a militarised EC-135...

                        What if we throw in the Lear?

                        There is no mention of trade in,anywhere in the Tender Documents.
