  • New EC135 Air to Air Pics

    Hi Guys,

    The EC135 pictures have certainly started coming in now including 9 air to air pictures of 270.

    Unfortunately due to a stupid thing called work I wasn't able to be present in Baldonnel for the arrival of the new heli's so I'm relying on others to supply the pics.

    Here are some sample pics, click on the link below them for the full lot:

    Frank.

      Excellent photos as usual Frank. Nice looking winch there too. I see they are gone back to the right hand door again. Any reason for this?

          Nice to see the alouette saying hello to its new stable mate!...the way things happen around here it'll probably be there to say good bye in another 15 years!

            Remember when the Dauphin replaced the alouette?

                Yes.................. the Sa365fi was intended as a replacement for the old SA 316...believe it or not.

                In the words of the people of the time this was going to save the universe and would reign supreme......perform the duties of a whole range of machines with the greatest of ease...well the allouette did ...not to sure about the dauphin though

                  Hi Goldie,

                  Glad you like the pics, unfortunately none are mine

                  Don't know the reason for the winch being on the right, maybe they got bored with the left side?


                  Regards,

                  Frank.

                    The winch is actually on the port (left)side of the aircraft with the pilot sitting on the right ,the same as the A 111. I would have expected to see the winch on 270 saying it has the floatation gear fitted.Then again maybe not????

                      well they couldn't put a winch and flotation gear on BOTH of the new heli's, that might have actually made sense!!!
                      What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

                        On both?

                        These are training and liason aircraft. Not SAR. With luck, they will spend much of their life without either attached.


                        that might have actually made sense!!!
                        For a joint delivery flight, where the aircraft have a long distance cross country trip to make together, it makes sense to share the load (and drag). It means one helicopter isn't burdened down with stuff, burning more fuel, while the other skips ahead (or waits). Its not like they were about to do a spot of recreational SAR on the way, now was it?

                          One has to wonder which one will be designated as the ministerial transport.....

                              Just looking at the cost there. €12.8 mil for two choppers. €6.4 each.

                              I know the EC 120 is €1.2 mil with a good spec. for the civvie version. But €6.4?

                              The 135 is the next model up and considering that its a twin (lets say x2.5 the price)

                              Each chopper at €3mil each. What kit and service do they have that could possibly cost €3.4 mil per chopper?

                              Unless training for pilots and techs was part of the deal?
